Suspension Problems

I am finally starting to put the bike back together and I am making great progess but I am having an issue with the suspension. I got it all hooked up and torqued down but when I went to put the bike on the side stand the bike looked lower than it should and would be straight up and down on the side stand. Does anyone have any pictures of the rear suspension setup that I could use as a reference to make sure I have the dogbone triagles in the right way and to make sure I have everything else hooked up right.

perfect, i got an 08 ok heres what i got


heres a shitty pic of what the back end should look like as far as height



heres another shitty pic, this one is the triangle brakets you were talking about, the shock is marked with a red X, there is also a arrow pointing towards the shock that youll see in my next pic, but in this pic there is a green arrow to show you the location of where it is




while i was looking at the shock i noticed that there was some letters and an arrow pointed towards the shock, this is the arrow on the top side of the triangle

Finally got a chance to work on the bike again and those pics help out a bunch, all squared away in the suspension department, now I am off to fight with electrical and the rear brake.
