    Ya, I heard the timbrens are the perfect length to prevent the shocks from bottoming out...but the rebound is teeeeerrible...so I'm wondering if I can run these and just invert them to the frame bump spots and add some washers


    +the price difference lol

    Timbrens suck! haha they are great for towing etc but if your looking to romp they rebound too hard making you buck like crazy.

    Yes. Exactly. However, they are the right length to prevent shock from bottoming out...that being said, I don't have any, nor do I want to buy them...I do however want to turn Superbumps into the correct length.

    I would suggest finding out what measurements you need first so your not speculating as to what will/won't work. IMO without the measurements your just spinning your wheels. I got the rear wheelers superbumps and they came with a huge tower. The tower is around 2-4" (can't remember) but I did not need it at all. I installed the bumps inverted to my strike pad and now I have maximum uptravel. My point is you may be just fine with the towers they already offer, but it's anyone's guess if you have no dimensions.

    you could easily pack down the bump by adding steel plate under it and just getting a longer bolt. I got lucky and had to do nothing for them to be perfect for my 255/85/16's and POS 5100's.

    Is the tower long enough for me to use the longer Bilstein without bottoming out the shock?

    So how many people have spaced these out some? I'm looking at ordering some for the F/R.. I currently rub on all four corners when wheeling .. mostly full stuff. I know these compress to about about stock.. so I would most likely still have rubbing. Thinking I can space them out a bit and sacrifice a little up travel but still have a smooth transition PLUS no/less rubbing.

    Any input fellers?

    Lol. That's without the towers correct? I read and saw your pics of them mounted. What about the front?

    Basically.. this is what I've gathered and plan on doing.

    Rears: I don't have a flip kit so ill be using the towers and mounting them and they should be fine.. or will I need to space them as well. I'm thinking no.

    Fronts: space 1/8" to 1/4" and that should be good.

    I know they compress like crazy during high speed(most compression) but for slow crawls, how will spacing them/limiting up travel affect the truck? The wont compress as much to begin with during slow crawls.. plus them being spaced a tad.

    Why don't you guys increase inventory to keep up with demand? Seems like.. it'd be a better business move.

    Molds are very expensive to get made, and the build process/curing takes time. Trust me, we are having them produced as fast as we can.

    Thank you all for your patience!

    I don't know your exact setup but if you run the towers I highly doubt you will need to space it out even further.

    And would you happen to have the link to Ants spacing for the rear? (on my phone and at work. Sshhh)
