69-Widetrack, Thanks for your interest and questions - they have made me look further into this. I just visited the Aldan American coilover website for more information. The total suspension travel on many of their units (not completely sure which I have - I'll find that out too) is in the 3.8" range, with the most being around 5". One page they have on how to set up your coilover shocks say if the travel is 3", plan on 2" compression and 1" rebound. They also said the shocks will be compressed about 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" at ride height. They also said the suspension should hit the bump stops before the shock bottoms out. Here is a link to that page: Aldan Eagle Shock Absorbers | Carson California | All Parts Made In America
