Re: The Measure your drop thread! Please participate if you have DROP springs!

Hi Scott. I know most guys on here will probably get it, but there may be one or two that don't. Is it possible for you to change the header, "gas level" to "fuel level"? since some may think it relates to a gas shock/air shock. That was my first thought when I read your proposal, then I clued in. Just a suggestion.....

Bernie
