    New question here. shock sizes on 05 sxt

    alright so im finally getting a new shock to replace that POS 5th on my sxt and i was thinking....

    - the stock shock is 8.75x2.5, correct?
    - the shock mounts can be changed .25in to change bb/HTangle
    - running the low bb/slackHT there should be a 1/4in shocklength/travel that could be added that would make it sit with the high bb/HTangle
    - so i should be able to run a 9.00x2.75in shock with the low bb shock mount and get the high bb settings, and another 1/4in shock travel

    ive seen another bike like this and it looks like a good idea, it will even it out with 170mm 05 66r or 180 totem, right

    nother quick question, the 05 66r came stock at 150mm travel, i know that it can be changed to 170 but i wasnt sure how, does it just require moving shims around inside or do i need to buy new springs or shims for it, anybody?


    *edit*


    wouldnt an 8.75x2.75 work with the hight bb setting and still get the extra 1/4in travel in?
