So so close to “completing” my Jeep project. Only carpet, SYE, new DC rear driveshaft and UCF belly skid left.

Full droop: 13.5”
Fully compressed: 7.5”
AR link length: 10.5”
OEM link length: 7.5”
The suggestion to add 2.5” to OEM link length was a really good rough estimate.
AR arm horizontal at full droop, when operator side was checked. Thanks again to all of you for the prompt replies.

If the arm is level at the mid point of the shock travel and the links aren't pulled tight at full shock extension, then not much else matters.
