So looking at the rules, I realize I have to change my plans. The shock rule that adds a modifier for 40mm+ shaft diameters makes running the only suspension manufacturer that provides NASA contingency prohibitive/ impossible. Thant kind of stinks, as you can get a full AST non-remote set up for ~1500 less than an MCS set up. Even though the MCS is likely the faster set-up, the shaft diameter is smaller, thus no modifier.

Kinda wish it were based only on remote/piggyback systems but it is what it is I guess.


My fortune auto coilovers are < 40mm shaft diameter and they have a good NASA contingency. Not sure if they have fitment for you. I have claimed contingency and have been happy with their performance.

I have always been curious about that rule. Here is an inverted Bilstein taken apart:

Technically, the shaft is less than 40mm, but I have always assumed the rule includes the shock body for inverted shocks.

Greg?

In measuring with a very accurate micrometer we find our Bilstein under 40MM "by a few thousands" Between 39.992 and 39.997
