Shocks

Put 3/4 ton axles (dana44 front, corp 14 rear) under scout II chassis and scout II springs. What do i need to measure for shocks? Going to have new shock mount locations.

I would pull the spring packs apart and install only the main leaf. I would then cycle the suspension to figure out your droop and uptravel. From there you can figure out the height of the bump stops, length of shocks and driveshaft lengths.

What we've done in the past is to drive up a ramp until you almost pull a tire. Then measure full extended on the one side and full bump on the other. This works best if you know basically where you plan to put the shocks.
