I agree I am going to look at turning them when I get home but I have beat these up quite a bit and they have held up fine. I don't think anything would break off because the bushings on the shock eye by the adaptor give it about as much side to side play as a set of stock shocks.

You can also invert the bumps so no welding is needed. You also don't need to spend the extra $$$ to get the flip kit with threaded holes.

It's a little ghetto but has been doing me good for a couple years of medium speed trail running.





If you get Wheelers Super bumps like I did you will not need the towers from them for the rear. This will save you some $$$.

With 255/85/16's I did not have to modify the bump stop at all. Just mounted it flush with a couple washers on top of the bump stop to flatten out the load because the strike plate is not flat.

I also helped a member out who is running 285's and he also was able to mount them flush like pictured without ripping off his fenders.

Seems to be a OK way to keep all the up travel possible.

Timbres are the expensive ones......the energy bumps are way cheaper!

I drilled holes in the mounting plate in my super bumps so they could fit the flip kit. Ask for the pre drilled flip kit though!

i've run both the timbrens and the 4.5'' superbumps. there is deffinately a difference. whether it's a $150 difference or not is up to the indevidual user, but i thought they were worth it. you only really see the difference at speed though.
