I would say your good between min :11.5" -max: 13.5" (front skid) most people set their rears up a 1/4 to 1/2 inch lower than the front...However, the best way to dial it in is to call your kits manf. and ask them...
If your rhino is bucking in the whoops check your rebound settings(slow it down) and make sure your spring weights are correct for your rhinos weight...

SDR bought the Mason kit and was set up with foxs.I got a deal on my Kings, they have the same spring rate as the fox set up.One thing I have notice is that on the fox set up the ft is a lot stiffer when pushing down and this is most likely the problem,the ft is to soft and the back is taking the hit.

do you have external adj. knobs on your shocks?

if its stiffer in front then before that means the front can take a bigger harder hit not less....stiffer=bigger hits, rougher on lil stuff.....I would think you need a revalve on the back shocks...does the front soak up the whoops well and its just the back thats bucking bad?

King just recently came out with compression adjusters....no rebound....You most likely need your shocks revalved....and I hate to sound like an ass....but that just turned your "Deal" into crap....usually LT manufactures recommend a shock with their kit for a reason.....Because they have put hours of testing in with a shock MFG.

I can do the valving myself I just was trying to get ride ht and some input of how stiff your guys ft ends are.Like a 1600 car the ft end must pop up alitle or the back will kick.Another thing is the wheel base I know Curt Laduke sets his bronco prerunners ass high for up travel being the wheel base and limited sup.
