Default Front shocks again

Does anyone have the measurements of their front shocks? I need full extension, full compression and the ride height. My specs are 15" full extension, 10 1/4" full compression with a ride height of 12"-all measurements are center to center. Is this similar to what others have with their CCX's? I'm asking because after doing the front end and took it to the alignment shop the tech said that the QA1's would work but there is only 1 1/2" of travel and I might bottom out the shock. If anyone has info it would help.

A couple inches at the shock is about double at the wheel. With 450-500lb springs you won't bottom out. In your other thread the Speedway add shows 2" before bottoming.

Default shocks

I have qa1 403s the same numbers you mentioned. Are your lower control arms level to the ground? I have almost 2 each way on mine. Also, is your car torsion bar or coil over?
