Default Servo Winch Spool too large?

Hey Fellas.
Just got a Reefs servo winch for Christmas and I'm running into a bit of a problem on my VS410 Pro


When the truck is fully compressed the spool on the servo winch blocks the right side of the truck from going down all the way and scrape up against the upper arm links.

Any ideas on how I might be able to fix this?

Here's a picture of what I'm talking about. The servo arm and the upper link to be exact.

Had the same issue. I went with a Powershift low profile servo winch, works perfect.

If you still have room below the body, some spacers to move the servo up may help.

I cannot tell from the picture unable to see the winch. Can you put a longer servo horn on the steering, bring the drag link down and parallel with the tie rod?

I'm using the Lockup RC winch spool. I also added washers under the servo to space it up.

I am using this setup on my Origin and PRO.

Your welcome!

Oh, I like the V2 black! They didn't have that one when I got mine. I'll have to get one of them!

Using the same set up with no issues - 2 washers under the servo mount, pushed inward as far as it goes (spool just clears frame). Make sure servo is mounted with spool to the rear. The stock spool is much too tall. The LockedUp RC spool still holds about 7 feet of line. I also went with their servo line vs. the stock Reefs cable.
