Much better to be slightly more than 90 as the pic shows so the spring rate stays progressive through the stroke. If it was slightly less than 90,that would be a bad(regressive rate) thing.

Well, they are 16" stroke. I started planning this project a long time ago. I tried to find books, videos, info of any kind on suspension. Went to off-road shops. Searched the internet constantly looking for formulas, lengths, distances, angles, etc. Not much luck. Probably sounded like a beggar. So I am just making things up as I go. May or may not work. I wanted the shocks at more lean/angle, but the way my cage is built, it wouldn't work.

what stroke is that shock? at full bump you want to be as close to 90* from the arm ( links in this case)  to the shock. if you have a large metal square it is easy to check. now same applies if you were leaning them straight in towards the center rather than on the out side.
