    Does anyone know the length of extended travel coilovers? I gave a set of SAW coilovers lying around that are 22” long and I’m wondering if they can be used along with a set of SPC UCA’s. Thanks

    Google or call manufacturers.

    I just looked up Fox 2.5 EXT CO on a vendor site and it's listed as

    14.55" compressed length
    20.04" extended length
    5.49" travel

    Thanks. A follow up question in this case. Is 22” too long?

    How are you measuring? Should be top of the top hat to center of the lower bolt.

    That measurement should be around 20"

    If that's how your measuring, and it's 22", you're going to run into CV and tie rod binding issues. Could run limit straps, but I would also wonder if your collapsed length will be too long as well.
