Hi Guys
How do you measure rear droop with that rear upright has a bridge under
do you usually remove rear upright And Measure it ? (Xray method :measure under the rear wishbone) or do you add certain amount on top of the reading ?
Thanx

I hang the rear of the car off the setup board just enough that the arm is off when I check my droop.

I measure under the loop to make sure that both arms are equal. For most setups, I will measure uptravel above ride height and then verify adjustments under the loop.

I've found that on the Hudy blocks measuring with the Hudy droop guage, 1mm to the bottom of the loop gives you about 2mm actual up-travel. Rear droop is a bit of a PITA on the Photon but, once you're used to it, it's easy to work with.

There is a little flat on the outside edge of the wishbone, allows me to use the normal droop gauges that most people are already used to. Nice and easy

I go off the connector piece that hangs down. I run anywhere between .5 to 1.5.
