    To the guys running these springs do you ever hit your rear bump stops or have you guys even looked at that?

    With the overload flipped I made contact with the bump stop mount (I don't have any bump stops on right now) and with the overload in the factory postion, I have about 3 inches from the mount or about where the bumpstop would have made contact. I love them!

    My shock bottomed out when the diff was 2" away from the bumpstop...plus the tire was hard up against the inner fender in the rear. Both those issues are gonna be dealt with./forums/images/icons/smile.gif I'm widening the fenderwells by 3" and raising the upper shock mount and using a longer shock.

    I run the large 5" bumpstops in the rear... and just touch them on full compression. What prolly stops me more is the tire interference on the inner fenderwell.
