A question for PeterVrc or anyone using the metal trinion retracts.
For the mains I've kept the pin between retract & strut fairly in order to maintain a similar ride height to stock. In keeping it short, the retract closes at a slight angle due to the strut touching the retract preventing it closing properly. To get around this, I could fit longer pins but that would mean the wheels would recess into the thin part of the fuse and a much higher ride height. I also have some plastic trinion retracts which don't interfere when closed but are are a bit bigger and deeper.
