    So as most of you guys know, I have the Foxs now from DSM.

    Really haven't had a chance to take em off road because I don't have my rear leafs in yet, so I don't want to bottom out the back shocks.... I did however, decide to push a little speed over some speed bumps today just to get a feel for it. They were the long speed bumps, vice the sharp ones. Anyways, I wasn't really going fast or anything, just kinda wanted to put a little flex into the front. They compressed fine, truck moved upward, coilovers rebounded and made a not so friendly noise.

    When I got to my destination, I inspected the coilvers, no evidence of the UCA's hitting the shocks, and I have the extended travel shocks, so my best guess is I hit the limits on the UCAs. They are the DSM UCA's, so they do have the little conical stopper on the top.

    My coilovers are set at 2.5", everything seems torqued down, I see no evidence of any contact points. Of all stupid knowledge that I attained througout my life, I know jack about suspension. Should this really be happening? I probably only took the speed bump at 15mph or so. Not too excited about this right now.

    nothing wrong with making a thread about this. not like you were bashing them; just trying to see if anyone had input. at least you werent asking about plasti-dipping anything.

    Agreed. It happened at about a quarter after 6 and they were already closed, so I thought I'd give it a shot here :)


    Thanks for the quick replies. Lemme know if anyone else has other ideas.
