Re: 8.8 swap update + shock question
Not that I'm an expert on mounting shocks, but I would think you'd want to mount them so they still have just a little room to go when the axel hits the bump stops.
Most Jeep suspensions will droop a lot, or alot, farther than they'll compress. If you mount the shock in the middle of its travel at normal ride height it might limit the droop while having unuseable travel left at full compression.
