The extended length is .8" shorter than stock.
So even a 1/2" top plate spacer does not give back all our lost trvel.
I feel like I have been cheated.
My OME rears give more down travel by 1" and collapse .1" more. That is a good shock. It looks like any Tacoma with an OME front shock is a short travel truck... a truck with less wheel travel because our down travel is shock limited... by like an inch and a half.
won't a 1/2" spacer give you 1" more and then actually be .2" longer then stock? ................................ LT baby
Maybe that's why I always thought they were a very jolting ride in trails with whoops and pot holes. hmmmmmm I'm guessing you have ARB's stated travel #'s?
