Thanks for the responses. To Roger, I did consider moving the silencer strap up a bit, just hated to leave bare metal on my new, chromed mounting tab. And, no, I don't have the passenger pegs installed, and never intend to carry a pax.
Here are additional photos of the entire suspension, both sides, On each side, the wheel/suspension saddle sits about mid-way of the available travel, as you can see. It seems like the at-rest position should be to allow more downward travel of the frame? I guess I could try new springs, but D'fly shows them as "on order only"
And, yes, for the observant, I did note from the photo that one of my axle adjust nuts is loose.. corrected after the photo was taken!
Finally, what is the suggested procedure for adjusting that bolt through the trailing portion of the suspension yoke? Waller doesn't seem to mention it.. obviously it is designed for adjustment.
