There are a number of ways to adjust your bump stop length. Most companies that make a aftermarket suspension kits sell Bumpstop Extensions
. For your lift kit, you'll want to measure for the new bumps.
To determine the length of added bumpstop, flex your jeep to the point where the compressed sides are where you want them to stop. With your jeep flexed, use a tape measure or ruler, and measure the distance between the stock (or existing aftermarket) bumpstops and the areas on the axles that the bumpstops would hit under stock circumstances. The areas the bumpstops should hit would be the axle tube to the inside of the leaf spring perch in the rear and inside the coil spring on the spring perch in the front. Once you have the measurements, add 1" to those measurements to factor in compression of the bumpstops.
Hope this helps! Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.
