Hey all. Posted here because our Fox is more SN95 ‘97 cobra then Fox underneath. Doing some shock valving and need to have estimates on unsprung weight and wheel motion ratio (hopefully stated correctly) for the SLA with Griggs torque arm. Any estimates on unsprung weight in the front suspension would be cool too.
Thanks in advance,

Really it's going to be better to measure these for yourself since your setup is pretty custom. Or contact Griggs directly.


Unsprung weight you can measure the individual parts with a regular scale then add them together. Note that unsprung usually includes 1/2 of the lower control arm weight.
