It's not good to bottom out without bump stops in place. You should replace them.

bottoming out w/o bumpstumps puts unnecessary stress on your shocks and will most likely eventually result in your shocks breaking....speaking of...i still need to get some haha

yeah, jd, fucking AP doesn't mention that the stock bumpstops don't work with their leafpack...i was pist, i'm hesitant to get some just because i'm really enjoying the travel, am too lazy to spend the money but i know they're cheaper than shocks....i've bottomed out like 5 times too....woopsiess haha

i'll say you can hit shit way faster w/o them haha

haha no...uhh wait i could look through, i haven't snapped any shots directly of them but they might have snuck in there somewhere...camburgs are cheaper than TC and have a bigger uniball so just more durability...they also seem to be a little less maintenance, meaning it takes a little bit more for them to squeak but i could be wrong.

I have heard that they are pretty squeeky
Are the shocks mounted with the reservoir on the bottom?

no reservoir is on top, it took an arm and a leg to get the guy at ORW to install them, he said they are going to rotate and the top mount, little hanger thingy will just cleave off the reservoir...i didn't get it though...the bottom of the shock compresses into the top half, the top half doesn't move anywhere, so how would it be pushed up and broken off by the top mount...i don't know, but i threw up some pictures in my gallery if you want to take a look, those are the best i got

and op, sorry for jacking the thread haha

Do you have stock springs? - I have some o.e. ones and if you need them, I will probably be in Santa Clarita tomorrow. Let me know or pm me.
