    sparkles, fairys, and happy things.
    Billies set to 2.5, is there good enough down travel room? Or over extension of the shock?

    Also will bilstiens fix the taco lean or is that a spring issue?

    about 1.5" downtravel. the shocks commercialize themselves as not over extending because the way they are made or something. no they wont fix the lean. you need to put a 1/4" toytec top plate spacer on the driver side to help out with the lean.

    They must have some sort of top out protection because in order to get 2.5 inches of lift that is a lot of preload on the coil and that would cause a shit ton of rebound force, especially from when the shock is compressed.
    They must have some super super stiff rebound valving.
