Suspension Stops

I have an 06 F350 2 wheel drive dually I was underneath the truck the other day changing the transmission filter and I noticed that the front suspension bumper stops have less than an inch before they make contact, is this normal or somthing I need to fix?

Sounds like the front springs may have sagged some. I would think it should have more travel than that.

So I should get new springs or look at spring spacers?

Sounds normal to me. Spring could have sagged some, but not a lot.

I would think that there should be more travel than that, but this is the first 2 wheel drive truck I have owned

on my uncles chebby 4500 his front beam rides on the bump stops, not too much to worry about, just make sure you dont hit any really big bumps...
