I had to trim the truck side cable. I tried crimping an aluminum ferrule with a hydraulic wire crimp press but it still wouldn't hold. I welded a nut to the end of the cable. Brakes hold!IMG_20210820_163118.jpg

Two things:

1. That adjustable collar is pretty high, how much lift are you running?? You are going to lose a lot of droop, which is maybe why your shock is bottoming out before anything else? I run a 1" spacer and I have about a 1 to 1.5" gap between the adjustment collar and the bottom of the thread.

2. Letting the shock get bottomed out first will significantly reduce its lifespan and could lead to the seals blowing out on you.
I have no clue what these shocks are set for and I won't know until the truck is back on the ground. Once the wheels are on it I will adjust the ride height.

Adjusting that collar won't change the length of the shock tho. In this configuration shock length is the limiting factor.

Loosening the adjustment collar will allow the suspension to droop more though when it is hanging as shown in the video.
I'm going to go ahead and hard disagree with that. The shock can't get any longer. As it's hanging is the full extension of the shock. Changing the position of the spring seat will have absolutely no bearing on the length of the shock.

It won't increase overall droop. But as you change the static ride height with the adjuster, your compression/ extension balance changes.

Limit Straps are a pretty nice thing. Once you're running them, you'll wonder why you didn't always have them.
