Will I run into travel issues with NB hats on MSM shocks at 12/12.5R heights? Something that might prompt me to use ISC or the like?

I know the shocks are quite long, but many praise the MSM factory valving over others...

Edit: just searched, looks like I will need ISC's for that height.

Yeah, that sounds pretty good.

A lot has happened since this thread. I have run the NB Hard S Bilsteins with 450/275 springs and the ride was wonderful and well controlled. I now have the 550/350 springs on it and everything is still good but I am starting to sense the shocks are nearing their limits of comfortable control and will get jittery and busy if the rates go any higher. Jittery and busy doesn't mean bouncy or rough but it does mean less competent rough surface following by the suspension and therefore less adhesion on a rougher track.
