Hi Guys,

I was looking at some rear shocks for my Vodou build frame. I noticed that where the shocks are suppose to be, spacing looks tight. Does Gaz or shock manafactures publish the size, length, width of their products? For example, I'm looking at coil overs, so Id like to know the max diameter of the coils and also the bushing eye to eye width,.

I'm using the small body GAZ shocks in the rear. The smaller body GAZ allowed me to mount a longer shock that fits next to the rear trailing arm bracket Vs the book design on a pedestal. The GAZ P/N is 130/090B12, it's a 13" shock with a 1.9" Dia perch. My spare springs measures I.D. of 2" with an O.D. of 2 9/16". As a reference, the my extra Spax springs are I.D. 2 5/8" with an O.D. of 3 3/8", so you get almost a 7/16" of additional side clearance to the rear trailing arm.
If you like a photo of the bracket, just let me know. DaveW
