TJ rear coil correction questions

Leaning towards the rokeman rear coil correction kit. TJ/LJ Coil Spring and Bump Stop Correction Kit Rokeman seems good because I dont want to gain ride height and I most likely wont be able to salvage the stock one after they are removed.

The concept seems obvious but can anyone give me a real world idea on how it effects the ride and wheel travel in the rear? Does it actually help the ride or increase the potential travel or is it just the only way to line up the bumps to the axle?

Any help would be appreciated.

No increase in height or travel, in fact less travel.

As shown in the before pic, OEM style bumpstops dont line up so the axle is allowed to travel farther upwards than intended....NOT good for your shocks as they then tend to continue to compress perhaps beyond design compressed height and get broken/damaged

Once kit is welded in, the bumpstops will be lined up and bump each other as intended.

Those are expensive. If I had to buy them, those are the ones I would go with I guess. They look a lot better than the others I have seen out there. Especially the goofy looking bolt on ones.

You can re-use the stock mounts if you are careful when taking them off. A good grinder and air chisel is what I used.

I moved mine so the bumpstops would line up correctly. I did it when outboarding the rear shocks, so I'm pretty sure the improvement in ride quality and travel is due to that.
