how much travel can you pull out of the deaver replacment springs(F42), and what length shock would you recommend for this application
i went with a 14" stroke 2.5" dia. double bypass. its nice to be able to adjust the ride without tearing apart the shock.usaf_taco said:so a 14" shock is what i need, would you recommend getting a triple bypass shock, or would that be too much for this set up, or should i just stick with a 2.5 shock body and external resivior? because right now i am running the deaver add a leaf with the donahoe remote resi's and it doesn't seem like it rides all that smooth, the rear end bucks alot but the front rides smooth. is there that much of a difference between a deaver add a leaf and donahoe shocks compared to 7 leaf deavers and 14" shocks? also where is a couple of good places to buy deaver springs, now that demello doesn't carry them
With your shocks angled in like that, aren't worried about wearing down the seals when the axle moves side to side?TBob said:I don't know what my staight verticle travel is but measuring from the flare Tire goes just up inside the well at full stuff and at full extention between 17-18" I've got a 10 leave dever pack and 12" travel bills mount like this.

hell even my setup bucks, but it takes a big hit to do it. thats what these are forGreenTaco said:I have a deaver 8-pack and Donahoe Rear Shocks and the ride is good, but it still bucks up, not a lot. The front handles better than the rear. I'm either going to do a bed cage or do an under the bed shock hoops with a longer shock sometime this summer.
I've been happy with all-pro's for the price. Have em on my 83(long travel springs) and my 05(stock replacement 1.5" lift springs). Had to do a little tuning on both sets to get em just right.usaf_taco said:i was searching around and found out that all-pro is selling rear springs for 250$, are these equal to deavers, or do the all-pro's ride like crap?
With stock shackles and the F42's I think the most we got was almost 12in with Bilstien 12in short bodies under the bed. With longer shackles you can pull about 12 maybe 13in. This was with near stock height bump stops and this is only the measurement between the bump stops.usaf_taco said:how much travel can you pull out of the deaver replacment springs(F42), and what length shock would you recommend for this application

Bump to bump?
Honest question, no sarcasm.
