So I have these helpers but not that slider:


Here is my stack currently, the helper is blocked out so I need to fix that:


And my springs settled to 6" of shaft showing, once I fix my helper setup I should be right around the 5.75" I figured I'd have. They were at 7" the other day.


You can see in the 2nd picture that I only have 2" of travel before the upper is into the slider stops. I planned on having that be around 3" before blocking out. I can't go higher currently because where they are set already limits how far the helpers push down. I went as high as I felt comfortable going while still allowing the helper to keep the stack in place at full droop. I'm kinda scratching my head on this one. I have to think about it some more I guess.

I feel your pain. I just bought my first set of C/O's thinking, eh its just a shock, I'll figure it out. Holy crap there are a lot of variables to figure out. Good luck, I'll be scratching my head as well.

Turned down my helper sliders to 1/2" thickness which took care of the problem with the helper springs blocking out.


Sits alot closer to where I thought it would now. I'm just going to run what I have for now and adjust the slider stop once I get the limit straps installed.
