Do I need to modify the front links with the 149 r/c worx skid? Does the links touch the frame?

Running 90mm shocks on the Ascender. At full compression the front links almost touches the frame. There will be less clearance with higher linkmounts?

Jato, oops I whacked off part of the url, fixed and thanks.

Desmo, dunno measure your frame, visualize with some links, maybe have to clearance something a little. A slight rub is not bad at end of travel and you can clearance with Dremel, file, bend link slightly etc.

I'm using the K5 wheelbase. I don't won't to notch my frame. So bent links it will be.

With 90mm shocks and Hyrax tires the height would perfect if it get some more clearance under the skid.
