My lift bar is set up with the shock on the very end then the coil over eliminator and then my break chain .........so the break chain is closest to the rear end .......this is in a different order than most I have seen ,can anyone tell me if this matters ? this is my first year on a lift bar.

Break chain location doesn't make any difference. The distance of the spring and shock from the rearend does. For the spring it's like making a springrate change when moving in or out from the rearend. And for a shock to be most effective you want it as far out as possible on the arm, so if you want to reduce a shocks effect then move it closer. Many have stopped running a shock on the lift arm.

I differ some about the location of the brake chain. The length of the chain more importantly than the position. Make sure it's not too short or too long. Too short = shortening transition wrap up. Too long equals = goodbye parts!!
