New bumpstops after lift?

Is it OK to have new bumpstops installed after the lift if the shop doesn't yet have the bumpstops? Say a week later or does this have to be done at the same time?

Extended bumpstops are needed when the larger tires go on. without them the tub can come down during articulation and the tire will scrub the fender. So the tire combination and your driving style will have the biggest impact. No big bumps, and you should be fine. How much lift and how big of tires are you going?

Fine to install later. Just don't wheel it or take bumps to fast until you have the bump stops. It could even damage your shocks if they bottom out.

You should have em but your ok on road.
The problem is the fronts are inside the coil. So that means the coils coming out again

Or he could use the Teraflex extenders for the upper factory bumpstop.
