front bump stop ??

ok well this may sound alittle odd but I was surfing the parts list at Jeffs Bronco Graveyard looking to buy some new radius arm bushings and found new bump stops that they say measure 2in they ones on my bronco now measure 3in what kind of disadvatages do you think I will encounter by going with the 2 in bump stops instead of the 3 in
Yes the bump stops are hitting the axles now.

Re: front bump stop ??

I just prefer to run no bump stops on both of my wheeling rigs. I dont see the need for them other than to limit the tire from hitting the fender or preventing the rear leafs from getting to sprung out and bent(this is more towards my zuks soft YJ springs, versus a bronco set) Some advantages you can gain with the bump stop hitting though is it puts weight on the other side of the axle transfering traction, though that doesnt apply much to the TTB front end.

Re: front bump stop ??

So I guess taking them off completely will just allow the axles to hit the frame right. Will having shorter / no bump stops increase the amount off stuff I get out of my tires before I start lift ing the rear tires.....remember all stock suspension on the bronco right now

Unless you want poly, you can get rubber radius arm bushings from any auto parts store. (Just tryin' to save you a couple of bucks) [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: front bump stop ??

your coils will not liklely compress enough to allow it to hit the frame, and it most likey wouldnt come close if you had a lift. go flex it out and see if your even hitting the bump stops as they sit now.

Re: front bump stop ??

maybe I will just cut and restuff the tires until the axles dont touch the bump stops anymore. then leave the left over there incase hte axle gets hard stuffed and needs the bump stop to cusion the blow a little. Biggest question is will this help off road with keeping the rear tires on the ground longer sounds like a real good cheap mod to me. If it helps off road
