    King Racing reservoir shocks, Camburg UCA's, Deaver 10 leaf pack, Bilstein 5100's, Magnaflow exhaust.
    On the front of my truck I have King remote reservoir shocks with Camburg UCA's. I am completely happy with this setup and can hit any dips/bumps at any speed and the front handles beautifully.

    My problem is in the rear, I have a Deaver 10 leaf pack, and Bilstein 5100's.

    When going over a dip at speed even unloaded I am hitting the bump stops.
    Is this simply the limitation of the 5100's? The leaf pack is plenty strong, and I am happy with the on road ride and performance.

    Any ideas for improvement? Timbren bump stops? Ditch the 5100's for Kings?

    Thx for your replies.

    You will see a huge improvement with a race shock that is specifically valved for your application. I.E. the weight of your truck, driving conditions, and your rear springs.

    I would say ditch the 5100s and go with King, Fox, or SAW and have them valved for your application. Sonny at DSMS is great to work with and can point you in the right direction.
