Ahh, i don't remember them at all.

I'm gonna remove the front shocks again and see if its possible to gain a little more compression length. The Bugpack short shocks are too short and stock length ones are slightly too long. Can't afford to have custom length ones made so hoping to somehow trim down the rubber top mount buffers as they are this type:

Not sure how you stop the piston rod from turning while you unscrew the top mount though as the shock has a plastic cover sleeve over it so you can't get to it.
