Yeah that trailer is way too tall... and doesn't look like it has any room for up travel so I wonder how the droop is.
about 5 inches of compression once loaded with the average gear for a wheeling trip. maybe 6-7 inches of compression when empty.

as for the drop, right now, the shocks limit drop to about somewhere in the 10 inch to 1 foot range from ride height. it'll be a different story when coilovers come around though......

I didn't mean yours. I've seen your pics of wheeling with the trailer I meant the one in the for sale thread.

All good! Sorry about being a nervous spotter. It was my first time spotting someone. I don't know why nobody else wanted to step up to the plate when you first asked for someone to spot you.
