Make sure to add a larger bump since there is more leverage on the upper mount after the mod.
I'm still running the original bump stops @ factory height...
never had a problem with my upper or lower shock mounts from additional leverage issues.
in fact... I've had nothing but good results from doing this mod.
No more hits on the shocks from the leaf spring...
in fact... no issue of anything... for over 7 years since was installed.
And I've flexed the hell outta this rear suspension.
This might not hold true for those whom live in corrosive states
and don't maintain their vehicles well.
Rust and corrosion could weaken those upper mounts
and cause premature failure.
Not so here in the SW tho'
