Why does he need help? He asked a question....for good reason.

Bumpstops will limit your compression to protect your junk.

Valid question...

I run RC's 4" kit with 35s, I do not rub at full flex. Just make sure your front and rear bump stops are correct.

Nooo....you do , thats why you asked the question.
So, do you know what bumpstops are? If you do...make sure they are set up properly and you'll be golden. Do a search for bumpstops. I remember seeing a long "How To" thread somewhere.


Edit..and to answer your half assed question. Yes, the tires will rub the flares at full flex.

Proper length bump stops are, as pointed out above, important. That said, installing tall bump stops to limit up travel at the expense of travel, is counter-productive to me. Personally, I'd also install a 1" body lift to that 4" suspension lift so the bump stops don't have to be as tall which limits axle movement. In my opinion, 5" of clearance is required for 35" tires that see trails tough enough to require 35" tires.

Here are some pics of mine with a 4" lift, no body lift with the proper bump stops installed. They just touch the fender flares. Since then I have change them out with shorter ones and they rub a bit more than this.

It also depends on the lift. What lift are you running?

This is a Tomken 4" lift with Johny Joints on controll arms. No problem flexing at all. Now it you have some of the older lifts they just used a rubber insert and did not flex as well.

Sorry, not you, the op.

No problem. Wasn't sure. It does matter though. Some are definately better than others.
