Clear, is the intention with the different towers that ride height and drop will stay unchanged if you switch over from gull arm + tower to straight arm + tower… anyone can confirm?

not even close to the same type of adjustment.

moving the lower mount on the arm changes the leverage ratio

moving the top mount on the tower changes how progressive/linear the damping is

3mm is the insert with the hole centered. Here is what I use for a spring reference chart.

Never said it was the same... in fact my statement reflects they laid down the shocks differently. Thanks for explaining the tuning differences

Since we're all talking about how to tune, here is a great link that I always keep saved. Has "in depth" reading as well as a quick guide.

Shorty all the way forward? Wow. You must be running on some high bite stuff if you don't need any weight in the rear?

Seems everyone is going to 1.6 rear pistons right away. Inner rear ballstud washers seem to be popular at 0 or 1mm. 35 front oil seems to be popular as well, and 30 out back. Seems most everyone on any med to high bite tracks having success is running the exact same front end setup, although 3-hole 1.4mm pistons up front seem to be around.
I saw that setup but Im not running that reedy sq pack. I would think running a shorty I would need a slightly different setup

I take it the "right" price will be a "fair" price for the cat?
