Sancho, i would recommend a c-notch when you put in this kit. Cut bump stops like i did work, but i hit them still some times driving on the highway or rough roads.

oh screw me then.
oh, and i forgott that i had to swap coils around cuz i had an akward lean...
soo take another two hours out for trouble shooting.

NOW, im done making excuses.

either way i feel like i could get it knocked out in a day now, if i had to do it again.

and x2 on the notch.
i just got my teeny lil bumpstops in...cuz im ridin with the stock ones right now....and man...my back hates me for it. but i dont really have anything to cut for a c-notch....so pancake bumpstops it is!

lol, that lean was probably from the bad alignment...fixed it when you swapped coils.

I just picked up the DJM bumpstops. It is a super nice product and has the bumpstops build in it.

It helped. I put installed the lift shackles on a weekend home from school, and I noticed i didn't hit on spots on I-5 where i normally would. I still get it sometimes though with the 4inch drop. it is liveable though, but if you're in there doing everything, might as well...

honestly, dealing with the bumpstops is person to person.

with my pancake bumpstops, i think ill be fine....and i do live out in a farm town...and right next to a major one.

and my friend who drives a 2door extreme blazer rides bumpstops in the back like no other....and has bags in the front...so when he drops down, its bumpstops up front too....and hes not bothered much by it.

so idk....its debatable...
