Springs are position progressive yes.
BP's are position progressive yes.
Valve stacks are speed progressive yes.

Keeping it at 90/bumped will make less work for the shocks. If your on a keystone budget, good geometry can go a long way to compensating for small shocks.
Unfortunately the valve convers prevent getting a true 90* at bump with out the motor being pushed way back . Which I'm not willing to do for the measly 200hp stock motor I have. That's a project for another time.

The engines do get in the way of good shock geometry.
The best work around is to sink the lower shock mount into the LCA to get 90* at bump.
This can be done with pockets in the LCA, or better yet, long rod ends.

First few tubes started on the engine cage. Mocking up the radiator kind of dictated how far out and how narrow I could get the 2 front tubes. Radiator got tight with the grill and hood line quick. I think it will come out nice. Still figuring out how the bumper skid plate situation will end up. I’ll cross that bridge when I get there.
