For the front I used 12 prothane coil inserts http://www.jegs.com/p/Prothane/Prothane-Coil-Spring-Inserts/762178/10002/-1 as they provide some progressive dampening as well, and just cut them to size. For the rear I made some out of 2inch angle, 2 inch square tubing and some hockey pucks, work like a charm , kinda ghetto

but seriously, spring spacers for the front(if you cant find a decent used set of springs somewhere, and shackles for the back, leave the hockey pucks on the ice

Those arent spring spacers, They are used in conjuction with my re5.5 coils, they also keep the tires outta the fenders, as well as provide a little cushion when I come down hard on the suspension. THE PUCKS ARE NOT LIFT RELATED.

You asked about bumpstopping, and I told you what works well for me, and has for some time, and yes I do play on rocks

i understand what the pucks are doing for you and am not in any way knocking you. I agree with jeep kills add lift to increase travel and that will keep your tires outta your wheel wells, and then add the bumpstops for those HARD hits


biggger is better

put a block in the back and fuck the rear bumpstops, obviously youir running way too big of tires for your lift and hacking your fenders with your tires,

lift it a little more, nuff said

actuality I'm very happy with it now, the articulation is perfect
but it is a bit to far, I saw a writeup on axel mounting stops I liked
and the once bxmaxx suggests seem to do the trick

I don't need or want more lift, my tire size is fine..I'm just fine tuning
3.5" on 31" is a good enough for my proposes, I don't need to re-gear
or hack and tap , it works well and goes where I need

NO SUCH THING AS TOO FAR!!!! also I run 31s on a 5 inch lift and my fenders are hacked out to nothing at all, and it is perfect. no wonder you hack your tires, bumpstops are not the way to go dude listen to Noneck and Vajayjay
they know what their talkin about

part of the reason why I killed my leaf pack was having no bump stop. over forcing the leaf..

as well as too much power being aplied to the axle didnt help either..

im pretty sure that the tourque of the stroker lifting the front tire in the air when you hammer it didnt help lol, sure was cool looking though,

ya im thinkin thats probbally what did it.. the leaf pack was mangled. you could pull the main away from the rest of the pack by hand, and the two lowest leafs were broken on the front.

mines like yours now, but I added just 2" to the frame bumpstops in the rear
and found some f-150 bumpstops that fit to do the same in the font
so I get the same articulation without the wheel well beatings couple seasons
let in these tires and then I'll decide if I want to lock the front and go a bit bigger
