rear bump stops with lift

Ok, I have the 4" skyjacker with rear 3.5" blocks. the instructions say the aftermarket block goes ABOVE the factory block. Ok, now what about the bump stop? the bumps didn't get dropped down. and I know the leafs aren't going to flex that much upward to hit them. so I essentially have no rear bump stops other than the overload leaf. Doesn't sit well with me. I'm debating flipping the blocks. putting the factory one above the aftermarket. this way you keep your factory bump stop geometry; no mods. what have you guys with lifted trucks been doing?

I put the factory blocks above the new ones so my spring limitations stayed in the stock locations.

yup, thats what I figured. I've seen a few trucks running around town with the Factory block ONTOP. that's what sparked me to think... Rank- have you had any issues with doing it that way so far?

no. the block height totals about 5-6 inches and the axle wrap is prety bad. but thats just the nature of the demon. personaly I wont have rear blocks on a truck again. its worth the money spent on full springs.

yeah, blocks suck. makes me wonder how these people running around on 6-10" of lift on blocks put up with it. or don't kill themselves or someone.

But If I got new springs, I'd still have to drop the bumps down somehow. fab up a 3.5" bracket.

the new springs are designed to run with the factory bump stop blocks so you wouldnt have asny problems
