I put on the Bilstein kit with an Icon track bar. I did not do anything with the bump stops. It might have worked just fine with out the adj. track bar, but I am picky. It does ride well with all that stuff on there. I am not sure if it is because the nice urethane bushing in the top of the new track bar or not.

You must use a adj track bar or correctly made drop bracket as every 2" of lift WILL shift the axle 1/2-3/4" Its Geometry.

Bump stops are fine if your shocks don't bottom out.
