Re: Alan felds 2010 diesel 4x4 Smb vs pace arrow rv

I thought the same thing when I watched it! 26" is a LOT of wheel travel for these rigs. As far as I know, you simply add the amount of travel from the wheel center to full bump and then center to full droop. Pretty simple.

2:09 paraphrasing: 'yes our front springs are flat, and that's an advantage.' Yeaaah, I think I'll take an arched leaf spring any day.

So in my picture that's about 18-20" not counting the up bump?

It's difficult to tell what the left side tire is doing but the droop on the right side looks good. You'll only have so much compression with the frame interference but the more the tires stay out of the air, the better!
