Abomination93 From personal experience leave the bump stops in, if you remove them and hit a good rut you can say goodbye to your engine. Mine came with no stops and didn't think twice, I went into a large puddle trying to get out of where I was and it was deeper than thought, I ended up bouncing my engine off my from axle 2 weeks later #1 conrod went ripping through the oil pan and punched through the block and cam.

2JeepsThatRun If you took the bump stops away your shocks would be the limiting factor (or at least the most noticeable one) and that would destroy them.

the bolts on your shackles may also be torqued down to tight. loosen them, and re torque to 40-45 ft-lbs while the weight of the jeep is still on the ground.
x2. This is about all you can do that I know of that you can do to improve articulation without throwing any money at it. Bumpstops are necessary...

Bump stops...On or OFF

I hav a 91 YJ Wrangler. It has a 3.5 leafspring lift by Superlift. Its the way i bought it. Took it out for the first time to try it out and articulation is poor to say the least. I used to have a 89 cherokee, and aside from a 3 inch Rough country lift, it was completley stock, but went EVERYWHERE. A small incline with a small rut stopped my YJ so I cant even contiplait on taking it where my cherokee went. I have seen the suggestions on taking the rear track bar, and adding quick disconnects for the sway, what about removing the bump stops??? Any ideas on this or anything else that will help articulation. I wont do a spring over.
