Bump stop extensions
 
I have noticed that the bumpstops on the front of my Jeep look like they're extended quite a bit. Its got the Teraflex coil spacer lift that the previous owner put on but the bumpstops seem a little long to me. They hit even just with the mild wheeling that I do. Im kinda afraid to do anything too wild because i dont want to run the risk of bending them. Just wondering what yalls opinion on it might be. Im still new to Jeeps since i only got my Jeep back in December. Oh and the rear suspension squeaks. Do you think it could be the coil spacers causing the squeak? Thanks in advance.

Heres some pics of what im looking at

Your setup looks completely normal. Mine looks the same way; I have the 2" spring spacers with the 2" bumpstop extensions.

yup normal, except for the coil spacers appear to be collapsing a bit. the bumpstops are needed to prevent the shocks from bottoming out and prevent coil bind.

ok thank you it just seemed a bit long to me. i knew what they were for but was kinda worried when i noticed that it had actually hit the spring itself a couple times
