whats the average amount of lift you can get with a lever setup?


found this on another site...

The paomnnehil pweor of the hmuan mnid.
Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in
waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the
frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae.
The rset can be a total mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm.
Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but
the wrod as a wlohe.

Its funny...i can read that just as fast as if it was all spelled right...rofl


Anywho... Lift all depends on the setup. 'average' is about 2x the stroke of the bag. Bag has a 5" stroke...u get 10" of lift.

You gsuy jsut udsretnidang tihs??

Depends on where the bag is mounted. The further up the "lever" towards the frame not the axle, the more the lift..in lamans terms. I know an S10 that has 17.5" of lift out back. That's a lot by the way...goes higher than a stock 2wd, up to about a 4x4s height.

I can read through it no problem. I think it comes from many years of reading emails from people that don't use spell check :D

As for your question, you can make a lever get as much lift as you want. I don't build lever set ups, but on the cantilevers I build, I stick to 10-12 inches of lift. Anything more than that, and it is hard to put shocks on in a way that they will be effective.

You're runnin Slam RS-7s right? You should get 10-14 inches or lift I'd imagine.. somewhere in there, depending on bag placement.
