I agree it would be nice to get more droop from the rear end with retained springs. Especially since the rear can drop so far. On the other hand the spring bind as it is before I get full compression.

It's never truly complete...but it took me about 2 years. 1.5 years to source all the parts and the balance to put it all together...but not without the help of Randy, AKA TDIGUY.

Here is a link to the rebuild:
