Appreciate the technical knowledge!2.5" W/1.25" shaft=3.68 Effective piston dia.
2.5" W/.875" shaft=4.3 Effective piston dia.
2.0 W/.625" shaft =2.84 effective piston dia.
So going up in shaft size lost you 17%
For fun, a 2.0 airshock/bumpstop is 1.92. Time to build a resi out the bottom bump.
I didn't have a choice in selecting shaft size for an 18" with this company, but I did realize a bigger shaft meant less oil and less performance.
Frankly, I've never been impressed with the performance of even the best short course setups compared to a traditional desert link. Kinda saddens me actually to see someone dump $100k+ and build a truck with a short course setup through Kibbe when much cheaper trucks with traditional links seem to work so much better. Not surprising those rigs end up for sale months later, too much cash for too little performance.
Didn't make sense to me to put $6k shocks on a truck with sub-optimal rear geometry and that will see 50% pavement.
Next truck, Big Bird, will get Fox all around.
