Very soft. I am looking around for other alternatives. I can't believe what little up travel that we have. My lower CA is polished from the contact. What most people forget is that the the down travel is as important or, more so, that the up side.HenryJ wrote:Pretty soft, don't you think?..................

Nope, I got side tracked with the P0155 but, I was worried they would not work out. I have a set of Heep stops around here somewhere. They are longer than the pictured ones but, could be shortened.HenryJ wrote:So Reed, did you get a chance to test them out?
I gave the ES bump stops a little test today. No rubbing, but I am quite a bit lighter than the usual trip. Probably short about 500# from the usual.
You would think that would be good enough, right? Nope.
Relatively the same thing as "having a method to my madness"! The end result is the same.HenryJ wrote:............I fly more by the seat of my pants than you may have been led to believe...........

I don't ever recall my rear tires rubbing but, maybe I missed it from the spine chilling noise that the front tires make.green02crew wrote:.............I have yet to have the rear rub so we'll hold off on those for a little while.

On to my first question. From my reading, I understand that what are being referred to here as bump stops are actually intended to be part of the front suspension. They are intended to be in contact with the lower A-arm and the compression of the rubber is supposed to act in conjunction with the torsion bars. Do I have this wrong?
I'm planning on a torsion bar tweak for the front end and it seems that lowering the lower A-arm away from this "torsion bar assist" is the biggest drawback. It looks like the longer stop from the rear of a full-size truck as mentioned here might be the perfect solution. Am I on the right track?
