By chance, are you finding that info from that mfg that showed the Works shocks (I think they were Works) laid way over and mounted at extreme angles?

The specs you've listed would be a motion ratio of 1.653:1

A Pilot's rear end is about as perfect of a 1:1 motion ratio as you can find. The shocks sit (just about) vertical and is attached to the outermost suspension piece. The shock shaft travels (almost) exactly the same amount as the wheel.

**An FYI for those that don't understand Motion Ratio:**

Motion ratio is defined as the ratio of wheel travel to shock shaft travel. Take the above numbers - 10.125" wheel travel and divide by the 6.125" shock shaft travel and you get the 1.653:1 ratio.

Wheel moves 1.653" for each inch of shock shaft travel.

**Note:** This is assuming that the shock is located so that it's more or less perpendicular to the motion of the suspension arm (*especially at full compression*). The more you lay the shock over, the more the motion ratio will change. (and the more headaches you'll have trying to get the spring rates and valving correct - a drastically laid over shock (more than 45 degrees or so) is a pain in the butt)

You have to use Trigonometry once you start laying it (shock) over more and more. The shock becomes the hypotenuse of the triangle, the suspension arm will be the horizontal part and the distance between the a-arm's mounting point and the shock's upper mounting point would be the vertical aspect of the triangle.

This is, once again, assuming that the system's close to a right angle triangle. Otherwise, it's time to draw it all on ACAD and then figure out the movements and such. Gets pretty deep! (I love this stuff!)
