Checked all theese points when rebuilding, everything moves freely, nothing changed on rebounding

What spring are you using? If you have a soft spring you may need more preload to get the desired ride height

How are you testing this? With tires on a towel? You need to check ride hieght and rebound on a smooth surface so the tires can slide. Glass counter top or setup board or something. A towel or mat may have too much grip for the tires to slide and bind the suspension.

So the arms fall free without tires and not shocks. The shocks will fall free prior to mounting them to the arm?

I check it when building the truck, screw by screw, move by hand, it moves freely, when arms without weels and shocks, drops down easily.

What about droop screws? They are not limiting the down travel effecting ride height?

Just going through check lists without being able to see the truck!

If the shocks don't rebound, there is *something* binding (either in the shock or in the arm), or your springs aren't springs. It's impossible for us to find out what is binding. You need to find the binding part yourself by process of elimination. We can keep coming up with stuff to check, and you can keep saying "that's not it", but in the end it has to be one of those things.
Being able to move something by hand doesn't mean it's not binding. It could mean you just use enough force, however little that may be, to overcome the binding.

Not talking about the 3 angles on the rear arm for the shock, I`m talking about re-locating the lower shock to the rear of the arm no longer using the slot that it normally rides in. The angle of the shock front to rear is the problem with rear re-bounding issues.

Does somebody have any tips for racing the SCTE below 0 degree celsius?
Diff oil weight, shock oil weight?

Here is a ratio chart i got off of one of my apps for anyone wondering what the difference in ratio was for the 39 and 41 tooth spurs. Seems like it would be going up or down like half a tooth on the pinion.
Is this chart correct? Shouldn't rollout values decrease when going to a smaller pinion?
