    When at full articulation or after a slight jump /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif, the top of the front axle u-bolts tend to stuff into the bottom of the frame. I have a 4" lift with stock bump stops, but they are not extended. Do I need these, or will that limit me? The rear axle is fine, any other ways to solve this problem (besides stopping to offroad it)? /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    I thought of that, but they only stick up 1.25", and that's perfect for the zero rates I might install in the near future. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    get new bumpstops. Those stocks ones are junk after you lift your truck
