It's very close to what we run Mike. We are at 12 in the right and 8 in the left. We have about 4 to 5 inches of shock travel per side overall. That is actual travel measured by putting some grease on the shock stem. Not by just pushing down on the car.

i got the little rubber washers on mine (lakewood 50/50). i can set them all the way down and that is what i get after a couple of runs. maybe i should lower the right side pressure a little. thanks
