There are handful of these threads that just end, so figured no need to open a new one.

@210lbs I bottom out all the time on stock shocks.

I got the generic treat coil overs at 280mm to match the original length, and

cut my own 8/10mm bushing/insert to go the width of the shock + washer + 5mm spacer.

I have minimal 1mm clearance to the frame, but this just looks dodgy to me.

I want to avoid doing anything non-reversable. (like drilling out to M10)

Top:

M8-1.25 60mm bolt

custom 8/10mm insert

5mm wide, 10mm bore sleeve bearing as spacer

M10 & M8 Washers separating it all:

Bottom

M8-1.0 45mm bolt

original 5mm spacer

original M8-1.0 bolt.

Clearance is tight on the right side with the freewheel. Thoughts? Please show me your 50V rear shock upgrades

thanks (edited)
