With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

The .85" lift setting is given with the OEM springs. Once you add a longer spring, with a higher rate, that ".85" setting now doesnt apply. With the 885's, the .85" setting gives slightly more than 1" lift, added to the lift the 885's give.

My ride quality improved from stock. Little stiffer over bumps but not too bad. Rear I'm using a block for now. Going to be upgraded to an aal here soon.

Eh more stiff than I'd like. I was thinking about dropping it back down to 0" and using spacers just to not per load the coil but I'm going to be taking them off soon anyways. Idk if it matters but I have the 885x coils which supposedly don't sag so maybe that would contribute to them being really stiff.

Rear I am running the Icon 1.5" pregressive leaf pack, which is smooth.
