Hi Rich,

The Levy Racing shocks are (or at least they were when I bought them) always the same length front and rear, pin drive or regular IRS. Due to the different geometry of the pin drive suspension parts, this will not allow sufficient travel at the shock when the ride height is correct. With pin drive you should therefore either use longer shock than regular IRS, or relocate the upper mount.

I am trying to figure out which way to go now....

The short and easy answer, ditch the levy shocks, they were never designed properly for pin drive IRS. Contact FFR to see if they still have some KONI shocks. It's zero degrees and snow, my car is under wraps, and I don't remember what the shock length was.
I do know the IRS shocks are different lengths for standard and pin drive.

Hi Lukas, that's been a long time and I don't recall exactly what I did to fix it. I do recall a lot of profanity. Rich's advice is probably best.
