    The shock was a 8.5 x 2.5" Vanilla RC. The leverage ratio was 3.2:1.

    a. SHJ most definately was the shiz. One of my fav bands ever! I went to a ton of SHJ shows, including the last show at Toads, and I'll never forget those guys. RIP Dave!

    b. If you run the shock in the forward linkage hole you'll have just over 7". If you run it in the rear hole it'll be about 5.5" w/ your 2.25" stroke shock.
