WAS WONDERING HOW MUCH TRAVEL ON A PULL BAR SHOULD BE CONSIDERED ENOUGH. D-W 8 4-Z CAR WITH D&M PULL BAR, 400-800 SPRING,PULLS IT 2-3 INCHES.

Sounds like your in the ballpark. We have a Harris 3 link with a 700lb spring and get about 2 1/2"

We run a Pierce car and run a 1100# spring in the pullbar and we try to stay at 3in max because any more then that and it tops the shock out, we moved the lr shock in 2 inches to try and stop this but it didnt help much so we had to put a chain from the top shock mount to the bottom shock mount to limit the travel. Just something to think about if your trying to get more lift out of it

we barely ever get 2" on our DW because when the car is rolled over and the lr is down and sucked forward it will fully extend the 90/10 shock and stop travel. The LR shock(on our car anyway) is fine but the 90/10 stops it.
