Im not sure whats going on with my bumpstops.

For some reason my drivers side front is hitting the spring. The tire is barely off the ground in the pictures. Jacked up right behind the tire.

When you extent your front bumpstops it's best to extend them from the bottom with hockey pucks or something like that. Extending from the top causes exactly what you're having happen.

x2 usually the back is bump stopped from the top of the perch and the front is bump stopped from the coil's bottom.

it's news to me about the bump stop extensions being on the bottom. only my drivers side is doing this. my passenger side is right down the middle. i must've bent something so im ordering some new.

in front the bumpstop extensions need to be attached to the bottom (drill and tap the spring pad), and should be 3" diameter, not the 2" diameter smaller body lift pucks you have now. the other potential problem is bad axle position...not having the correct control arm lengths to set caster and bumpstop alignment at full bump will make this problem worse.

ok so the bolt got bent somehow. new bolt and it's straight down the middle of the spring again. i did order some bump stop extensions that go on the bottom and i'll replace the pair that are on there when the new ones arrive.
