Travel??? By the looks of the pics, it does not look like it has very much travel... I see that you have a jack simulating the weight of the car, but it will settle more when it is actually rolling and sitting flat.

when the car is on the ground, and bounced up and down to settle, there is enough travel,- per QA1 specs.. you cannot 'bottom ' this shock out..won't let you, i also have a QA1 sock bumpstop on the piston.the total travel of this shock is 5.5 inchs. stock koni..is 6"

QA1 recomends 70/30 spilt on shock mounting, i ran 60/40 on my car.. got my neibour to come over( he drives a f250 truck i sold him.. he comes in at 300 pounds,, bracing himself on the overhang, he steped on my bumper, up and down as hard as he could.. , while i was filming the shock travel.. works perfectly:):)..by the way he wants to drive my car,, tryed sitting in it. did not fit.. he was kind of sad,, he likes the car..
