Is it possible to reduce the travel on a Z150 DropOff? What would you have to do? I picked one up cheap for the hardtail I've been building, but it's a little tall for my liking. I don't need to slam it down, but chopping off between 25 and 50 mm would be great.

Space out the negative travel spring assembly is pretty much what it comes down to.
Could someone explain this a little bit? One side is an ETA cartridge and the other is SSVF. I'm not too familiar with working on forks. I have replaced seals before, but that's pretty much it. Thanks!

Basically there are 2 springs. 1 is the main spring, the big one. There is also a smaller negative travel spring. This spring is to control topout. If you make that spring longer, or add spacers around that spring, you're making the fork top out earlier. Thus, reducing the travel and axle to crown height.
