x post from another thread on ISX-6

Similar setup query as OPs post here:
This question goes to users of the Manitou ISX-6 on a Nomad Mk2 alu, specifically and on other VPP bikes in general.

Some info to put it in context: On my ride last ride, on mostly AM trails, I noticed for the first time after installing the ISX-6, that on landing after bigger drops/stairs/jumps on higher speed, the rear wheel was rubbing on the seat tube of my Nomad. :nono:
I wouldn't have noticed it, until I actually heard the sound on the tire rubbing on metal, on the video that one of my riding mates shot (maybe about 6ft. drop), see below (pay attention to 00:13-00:16):

Then I looked at the decals I have on the seat tube and there are partly peeled off, from frequent contact with the rear tire. Doing my usual drops of about 4-5ft., I always have about 5% of travel still left on the rear shock. But now on the bigger drops my rear tire (Maxxis HighRoller 2.35 LUST) is rubbing on my seat tube. :rolleyes:
My current setup is 90PSI on the IFP, and 170PSI on the main can, with 3 clicks of LSC and 3 clicks of HSC and bottom out at 2, fully kitted, about 210lbs (92kg).

Has anyone faced a similar situation before?
What should I change in my rear shock setup so as, the real wheel does not touch the seat tube on larger drops/jumps?

You should measure the shock to make sure its the right length, should be 8.5"(216mm) long from the center to center of each eyelet, with 2.5"(63.5mm) of shock shaft showing. I run a 2.5 Minion DHF and I have never buzzed the seat tube, but I have a completely different shock.
