Raising Ride Height
While I had the shocks disassembled to replace the bushes and I had access to the whole unit I decided to try raising the ride height a bit to stop the exhaust grounding. So I wound them up about 1/2" (If you remember I could not do that in situ as the whole unit was rotating when I turned the adjuster, now I could hold that in a clamp while turning the adjuster).
Took her for a short run and the ride height doesn't seem to have made much difference. There is a spot on the exit from the village that I always avoid as I ground there regardless, so I tried again. She still grounded, although it was more of a 'kiss' than a violent thump. Maybe I could try adding another 1/2" to the coils. We'll see how it goes.
