all pro expo leaf spring help!

hey guys will be ordering my all pro spring soon "expo" and have a few question i have been reading alot but many guys have different set ups its hard to find the info i need.

i was planning on getting the kit with rear brake lines and u bolt flip kit.
however it seems i cannot use my stock bump stops. so i was on all pro site and the standard leafs talk about setting up with stock parts for warranty but nothing for expo leafs.

i plan on getting walker shocks for the extra travel but this is where my concern comes in. i was wondering if they come with bigger u bolts if you buy the leafs alone so you can use stock bump stops. also will i need limit straps? for 10" shocks which i think are the ones that all pro sells with them.

with the all pro u bolt flip kit you cannot use stock bump stops right?
thanks guys in advance and any tips or recommendations would be greatly apprciated

I have my stocks bumps with the flip kit. They actually sit quit nicely right between the bolts and I just drilled a hole in the plate and used a bolt and nut to hold the bump. You could also tack weld the stock bump to the flip plate. So yes u can easily still use your stock bumps. As for the shocks, I'm not sure what length the walker evens are but that leaf pack yields 11" of travel, so to answer your question, a 10" shock would be the limiting factor in travel. In that instance, limit straps would be a good idea but imo not necessarily needed depending on what u do with your truck.

I actually only have 1. I kinda didn't think about it till they were already on and I couldn't get my drill in on the other side. Lol but that one had been there for about a year now and I drive a lot on road and offroad and they are still there. Lol

My understanding was the new bumps are intended to prevent the springs from going into a negative arch.
