We put an indicator on our 90-10 that shows how much comp. and how much rebound. It shows us that every time the 90-10 is being fully extended. We also have an indicator on the pull-bar spring. The amount of travel on it varies from 2 1/8 to 2 1/2. It seems to me that if it bottoms the 90-10 every time you should have the same reading on your spring every time. Why not? How can we keep from extending the 90-10 every time and still get a decent amount of travel out of the spring? Sorry about the length, hope it makes sense.

Are you using the full stroke? On my old car the shock was extended pretty far sitting still. I ended up making a two inch extension that went on the shaft of the shock then the heim went on the end of it so it could fully extend.

I ran into that exact problem on a GRT mod. We didn't find it until the shock broke the front mount and suddenly the car hooked up much better. We ended up cutting the front mount loose and moving it back. By the way moving the 90/10 left and right in the car is a great way to tune corner entry. Our was mounted to the right and the car was alway tight in. I moved it left about 5" and the car was much better.
