The recommendations when i asked the same question was always a lower spring longer than the travel so you never come off the shock body and bind on the shaft.
Agreed.

14" coilovers on my rig and I run 16" lowers and 14" uppers.

Get on Pirate 4x4 and look up the old threads from Wayne at All Tech motorsports. Grab yourself a few drinks and spend an evening reading the whole thread.

The way he explained everything on Pirate made you really understand the whole picture about shock setup, spring rates, shock location, everything. Now if only him and Cameron Steele can finish KOH in the Lasernut car that would be a awesome accomplishment too!
