Default Shock help

Help a little bit fellas,

Built my shocks(mini platics ones) the other night for my mini, VERY careful to assemble them with the 6mm spacers, install on the car check ride height and got it to 5mm. Checked uptravel and seemed too much 3 front and 2.5 rear. I was able to space the fronts to limit uptravel to just 1mm but rear spacing did not allow retainer on the shock. Had to install the spring then screw on end and retainer together. Is it possible that a car that turns so much has to have that much rear uptravel?
Racing Saturday and thinking I might be in for a quick shock rebuild to changes this but what do you mini gurus think?
