The 1/2" difference is due to the staggered upper mounts.

I'm gonna guess your shock travel lengths are incorrect
and that the shocks are bottoming or extending too far.

* I thought the stock shocks (oem) are 6" and 6 1/2" travel

Yeah its pretty fool hardy to lift the rear of a 1st gen ANY amount without a shock upgrade...

I just talked with Sonny at Downsouth, awesome help as usual. He's set me up with a few ways to figure out what's happening. Travel for sure the likely culprit, I think I'm bottoming them out, I'll check to make sure then mess with my bump stops or go with a different lenght 5125 depending on what I figure out.

Awesome help here though, thanks. DC
