The stock link is 12" from eye to eye - so a 1" lower should be 11"

Hmmm thats weird cause when I lowered my link 2" it measured a 2" lowering between the frame and the axle CL. it was a 1 to 1 ratio.

Where are you guys figuring the 2 to 1 ratio ? bottom of frame to the ground?

I measured mine at the top of the frame where the passenger seat would be down to the ground, that's what is getting lowered.
