Default Suspension question?

Does anyone know how to make a fusion 600 sit much higher? Id like it be close to the height of my iqr. The shock are all cranked up all the way but still no where near where I want it. Let me know what you think I can do. Thanks

And just so no one asks why I would want to do this is because I dont ride trail. I race and my Fusion is just my back country play sled that I like to beat on in the mountains with my buddies.

You can set ride height with the rear adjustable block on the torsion spring. Longest flat side away from center is you highest and stiffest setting.

You are talking about rear height right?

you could possibly take the sway bar out and get some longer shocks. I've heard the IQR shocks will fit and they are a little taller you will definitely have to remove the swaybar to run them because they are valved very stiff.
