I understand that the rear shock linkage has a progressive action and that using a different length cushion rod (dogbone) changes the starting point of the shock linkage movement. My question is, does using a shorter dogbone (i.e. raising link) result in a “softer” rear shock action and is it noticeable?

I guess another way of putting this would be to ask those people who have installed raising links, did you notice any change in the rear shock action - harder or softer?

I’m about to install a raising link (a very mild 5//8” raise) and wondering what to expect. I am already aware of the effect on geometry and steering feel (that's why i want to try it out).

I miss Andy, it was fun when he was around. Napkin was quite a character too... :p

In the end, Andy dug a hole so deep, it caved in on him.
