    The CV's were good when we test fit the first set of 8's but that was with icon billet UCA's.

    Even the Light Racing UCA's have more travel than the weak link. I'm still not sure what limits down travel. I'm thinking LCA's though.

    since were on the topic of cv bind and such, ive test fitted my 2.5x6" coilovers and theres about 1/2" of shaft left at full droop, im not sure if its my cv's binding or the LR UCA's, am i gonna need to run limit straps so i dont break things at full droop?

    You can feel it bind if they do bind at full droop. Just try and spin the tire with your hands with the truck on jack stands. If the CV is binding you can feel it as you try and turn it.

    That is what I am thinking. Not for sure though. Guess I should have played with it while I had my UCA apart. I have it aligned now and don't want to take it apart again.

    You removed the sway bar right? That will allow tons more wheel travel compared to stock. If you're running a 33"+ start making room. LOL

    I had to space my superbumps with washers as my UCA's have smacked holes in my upper fenders.

    I already have dents in my fenders from my UCA'S and I have a 1" body lift. Haha

    Ditched the sway bar a long time ago now. I practically need to to tub for 33's because they beat on my fender wells pretty hard as it is. May be worse now that I changed to superbumps...

    Yup, superbumps squish down quite a ways when pushed hard. Gonna space mine a bit soon.

    Another Deaver Expo pack out getting used. Were Installing another set right now. So far it's been nothing but good feedback on them, especially once they break in a little! Just really happy there is another expo leaf pack available for you guys now.

    Icon RR C/O's with TC UCA's, Icon 2.5" rear shocks with Deaver Expo J66 pack. Rear lifted up about 2.75-3" and front is set at 3". He has the shell and about 200lbs in the back in the pic.

    Superbumps are too soft for the rear as well?

    The ones I have.....can bottom them out "supereasy". I'm running AP standards and ext travel 5100s but the valving on 5100s suck!

    Once I save for a bigger 2.5" shock we'll see if that helps but I'll prob just throw a bolt on hydro bump anyways.

    Do they at least bump your travel in the rear though? If they do I wouldn't be too concerned. I'm pretty sure I run out of up travel up front rather than the super bumps stopping it...

    So you didn't check if yours was binding at bump or droop...and you don't know what's limiting travel?

    Nope... haha ill find out what happens today. I stuffed and ddrooed it yesterday on the trail fine though.

    I think it is the LCA limiting both but that's unconfirmed. With the ORI's in their internal bump limits my down travel though. Hopefully the superbumps do at least something for the up travel.

    Sounds about right... although the ORI's should help soften the landing now. I had the front in the air twice yesterday though and all 4 in the air once. Not a whole lot of air though. Maybe a foot at the most. There is a nice spot to catch a little air right by the house here.
