How much clearence do I need between bump stop and axle?
I have completely re-done my front suspension to try to make my truck ride better. I went from a 6" Pro Comp dual shock set up to a 6" mix and match kit. I've got 6" Pure springs, Bilstein 5160s, and PMF 3-link arms. While I was changing out all of these parts, I noticed that I only have about 2" of clearance between the bump stop and the axle. I never noticed the truck hitting the bump stop before with that d@#* stiff pro comp set up. But now that I have a much softer set up I can feel it hitting and can see the imprint from the bottom of the bump stop on the axle. Should I get rid of the bump stop extension? Get a shorter one? Or just leave it? How much travel room should i have? I am far from being a suspension expert so any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
