X2 the Hudy manual will only confuse you if you dont know what's what.

I measure the distance from the middle of the top and middle of the lower mount to get desired droop. I then unhook the shock at the top to ensure that the shocks arent being over extended.

You can go from there to get your desired effect. There is always a happy medium.

but dont the shocks only over extended, when you have hardly any droop.
i would think that if the droop screws are, touching the chassis it would prevent that right?

Well that is the reason I use the droop screws to get the right length.

you say you set the droop then take the shocks off to make sure they are not over extending, but thats what the droop screws are for to make sure they dont over extend

I use this for droop, it's too tall for ride height unless you run your ride height at 40mm+
It works great for the droop though and is much cheaper than Hudy.

I guess I just like to double check things by pulling the shocks off and making sure I have to push down to get them on. I should have mentioned this, I usually do this when I'm trying a new setup.
