    I haven't used these but I did undertake an experiment to see if altering my AM's geometry via a different shock shuttle would work.

    In essence, the shock shuttle I tried moved the shock forward 7mm, dropping the BB and reducing the HA by about 1.5 degrees.

    I compensated by fitting a shorter fork and running the bike in the third hole down for travel.

    What I found was geometry that worked really well but the spring rate of the shock got really progressive. It was like riding a slopestyle bike or something where the spring rate ramps up massively. I found I was loosing control and getting my feet blown off the pedals quite a bit.

    But that was a 7mm forward shift. These bushings do the same thing but only by I think about 3mm? That's going to reduce the HA by less than a degree I think, but don't quote me. BB will drop slightly as well.

    Of course all this depends on what bike you're thinking of putting them on.
