that's 50% droop. Change spring rates and you change droop.

40-50% is fairly standard stuff. I MAY adjust it to 40% after LS.

For dunes I'd have to agree that a bit more ground clearance is nice but for hardpack I like a bit less. In the end it's a personal preference,no right,no wrong thing. Almost!

To me, it is not really about percentages, but what you want ride height at, how much up travel you want and everything else goes toward droop.

On the long travel kits I sell for the FL350, I offer two shock options. One gives more travel. All the extra travel is droop. So one is 1/3 droop and the other is 38.5%. I am working on a one off setup for someone now. He will have 63% droop, same ride height, same up travel, just a lot more droop.

+1 in that it all depends on end use.
