Boge and ride height
Our story so far,
>> Actually ALL boge's have a designed for ride height (Just like the Monroe
>> Sens-a-Trac) and guess what? All Boge's for the Audi are for the Stock
>> ride height.
>What does it mean to be designed for a stock ride height, except that
>it would have equal amounts of travel in both bump and droop? What

(1) On turbo-gas a lowered car should have little effect, **but**
(1a) a lowered pring must be stiffer, and a stiffer spring needs a stiffer
shock to damp it
(2) On pro-gas the damping rises with "displacement" from center. If you start
center you have very strange valving (e.g.: it would be decreasing damping vs.
compression and increasing on rebound, or do I have it backwards. No matter,
its a bad idea
