Is. 2.0 front coil over enough shock for a 2door

Is a 2 inch coil over enough shock for a little go fast as well as rock crawling? I have a 2door with an 8inch stretch 60s. The coil over kit I have only excepts 2 inch coil overs.

Just looking for some feed back before I install

Im actually a little surprised @thedirtman didnt ask for some more specifics.

How much "go fast" are you doing and how aggressive?
What Coilover kit is this? Im wondering how they are mounted.

Most people run too long a travel shock for go fast and put the mounts in questionable locations. They also don't run the right coils or a decent amount of preload. Lots of factors go into it. I am just getting tired of doing the same thread over and over, I guess i was having a bad day yesterday and just didn't care to ask any more questions as most people asking want justification to run something they really don't need.

No, they will run too little up travel in their set up. You mainly see a coil over set up LCOG with around 4" of up travel and 8" of down. This is just not enough up travel for go fast to work without constantly bottoming out.

Gotcha. So its not too long of a shock per se. Its just too long for how much up travel you are setting it up for.
