Re: Walker Evans Velocity
I agree with what DBRs1 said. For the most part, at static ride height there is usually very little gap between the divider and the crossover rings (this is why everyone complaining of collapsed tender springs on stock shocks makes me wonder sometimes.) Even more true in the front than rear because under acceleration you will be lifting the front end. If that picture of your front suspension is without a jack supporting it then you have way too much travel to the crossover ring which equals too soft of a spring rate until you are too deep in to your travel which equals too fast of a shock compression speed which equals dampening not being able to catch up. If you go from acceleration to braking and then turn in this will result in hard nose diving into the outside wheel on corners.
Also, based on the video, it looks like you have way too fast rebound though that could look that way because you short landed a table top and the ground dropped away as you came off the back side. The reason this is significant is because bottoming out and too fast rebound are, in a way, opposite issues. Bottoming comes from too soft springs and too soft compression setting while too fast rebound comes from too heavy springs and too little rebound setting.
