    Try taking the drive shaft off first. That’s easy and could possibly be causing some bind.

    Yeah if your shocks aren’t charged then you have an issue.

    Are your shackles hitting anything? I can’t tell from the pics.

    Not your issue but on mine they were hitting the bed and causing the same issue.

    Bump location looks much better. As far as lifting the truck up, mine did the same. Not quite as soon as yours did, but I had a 200lb rear bumper at the time. I accommodated it to minimal weight over the bed and fixed by throwing my spare on like you did.

    If you aren't bottoming the shock out on full droop id move your lower mounts up a bit. Hell Id move the bumps up an inch at least.

    Get everything you can out of this thing. You can always shorten limit straps/make adjustments, or on the other side raise the strike plate later. Once you fully weld the cans it will be tough to move them and cost you a new set possibly.

    A whole lotta parts that are not on the truck.
    ^This. There's still a lot of usable room on that shaft. If others haven't chimed in already, I think I've seen people bump with under an inch of shaft left in uptravel and as @Hawk373 said you can always raise the strike plates.

    I get to do this same routine soon because brown santa just arrived with my 2.5x14 triples, so stoked.:D

    I don’t really know.
    Should I set to use the maximum amount of shaft at full bump? As in the is mostly compressed.
    Then there seems to be a lot of unused shaft at full droop.
    I wasn’t sure so I went in the middle
    I can raise the shock mounts for sure.
    Also I did move the bumps up more

    I got the axle 1/2” from the frame and set my bumps off of that position. I welded some falsework tabs just to hold them in place, then built the mounting structure around that.

    usually when i setup foxes like that i leave a 1/4” of shaft showing fullbump that rubber bump on the shaft can compress some if worst case it needed to.
