I'll let someone more knowledgeable answer but yes, you can only have as much travel as your shocks allow but have to account for everything else (clearance, springs, suspension geometry, etc.).This was extremely helpful and informative, thanks. It does seem like the only difference is the Bilstein shocks. If I am understanding this correctly, the Bilstein shocks are what allow for the difference in suspension travel between the BD and BL trims without any other real changes. Am I missing something or does that seem accurate?
