I run a metric framed street stock,I run afco shocks.My front ride heights are 7 1/2lf and 8 1/4rf.My problem is my lf shock is bottomed out sitting there,and my rf has only 1/2" of travel before it bottoms out. I corrected the problem by spacing the lower shock mounts down 1 3/4" with a spacer,so the bottom of the shock mounts lower. I wanted to know if anyone else has had this problem in the past,and if so how did you correct it,without raising the ride heights? thanks

I believe afco only makes that length for metric cars with stock shock mounts.

what lenght springs do you have in the front?
Are they too tall or short?

Big dawg if yor shock is sticking down 1 3/4" from the bottom of the lower a arm you are asking for it to get broken off by a piece of debris. are you running stock parts? Is the bottom of your lower a arm about level?
