I can clearly see what John is talking about this isnt butt kissing or anything.

Since the one shocks is mounted farther down it moves farther.

The one inside has less of an advantage for damping as it moves a smaller
distance so I would want that one stiffer.. and the bottom one that
has a longer range of motion should be less stiff..

This is like 8th grade physics for that part....

Back to the topic.. More shock is not always better.. you can be extremely
overstiff with one shock.. If you want something to be unique.. there
are better things to do than shocks.
**disclaimer** this comment applies to normal rangers not built prerunners
and that kind of crap.
