Default Clearance on a Stadium

I have a FG Stadium and would like to get a bit more clearance I thought about the shock spacers but this thing is already very stiff, is there any other way of doing this, I don't want a MT look just a bit more higher.....

Sc, there really is not a way to do it. The A arms are set length. You could make longer A arms and make cantilever shock mounts to adjust to a bigger angle of drop on the arms, but it would need a LOT of re-tooling to do this.

And with longer arms you would need longer drive axles

I got a small clearance improvement by cranking down the threaded shock collars to compress the springs. This makes the springs pretty useless though.

Somebody (not sure if they do anymore) made a Long Travel kit for the MTs. I'm sure it would work on a ST. I'm not sure who or if they make it anymore.
I'll be back
OK, heres what I found
