Here is the email reply from Jakes concerning the spring rate of their rear long travel coil-over shock. It confirms the rate is 125 lbs per inch.

I switched from coil overs to air shocks with limiting straps. Completely fixed all the lean and wobble. No more getting squirrely while traveling at a high rate of speed. I run them at 90psi.

Can you post a picture of your setup?
Also would be awesome if you have the part numbers for both the shocks and limiting straps you used, great idea indeed.

These fox air shocks look like they would do the trick, only need to know if the Heim joint at the end fits our mounting bolt which I believe is 7/16 as far as hitting the mounting bracket, I think they are slim enough to avoid that issue.
Any thoughts on these shocks?

I'm thinking this model might work for us with the jakes rear long travel setup, my only concern is the mounting bolt holes have a 1/2 ID and I'm pretty sure ours use a 7/16 mounting bolt for the shocks that came in the kit. I'm thinking these shocks combined with a 18" limiting strap would do the trick, only thing would be finding a way to properly attach the shock to the mounting bolts, shim or a adapter of some sort. Any ideas, top hole would be no big deal, it would be easy to open it up to 1/2 but the bottom bolt size is pretty much stuck do to the design of the billet mounting adapter that attaches to the Axle tube.
