It depends. Two inches of lift should have 2 inches of bump stops so you don't stack your springs or bottom out your shocks, even if you don't change tire sizes. It's not just to keep the tires from contacting the fenders.Unless you are stepping up more than .5" in tire size, longer bump stops shouldn't be necessary
Of course notFWIW, the components don't appear to be 2" longer than stock, and those springs are sagged (100k miles)
Agreed. So you think a higher spring rate increases the likelihood of fully compressing the shock?Of course not
while they can appear to be the same length/height overall it is the spring rating that makes the difference and provides lift
The OME 927 and 790 front springs are almost identical in overall height
But with 927s being a 400 lb spring, and the 790 at 500 , holds up more weight etc.
PLUS the front springs already being installed with the shocks, the overall length of the shock is what is holding both the same , so picture does not show anything in reality
So the assumption is you'll take a "lifted" truck off-road but not a stock one? Otherwise, wouldn't stock be more prone to damage?I think the idea is that even with stronger lifted springs, the suspension will articulate when off road, and without bump stops that extreme flex could bottom out or top out your shocks, damaging them.
Welp since we only give opinions on a forum ..that was most of our opinions ,if you feel you dont need them then dont install them ,kinda simple reallySo the assumption is you'll take a "lifted" truck off-road but not a stock one? Otherwise, wouldn't stock be more prone to damage?
I put "lifted" in quotes because, for this kit at least, it doesn't seem like the shocks/springs are much different in length (see my post above). The lift occurs because the springs are simply stiffer; the actual articulation range doesn't differ (at least not so much to warrant extended length bump stops).
