My shock combo seems to be about right. I actually had to slightly compress my Rads to get the bolt in them when I was assembling my rear suspension. And fully flexed, I've still got some up travel on the shocks left when I'm against the bumps. I think that'll be good since you'll need a little more up travel to compress both sides of the rear at the same time and also if I hit really hard, the Timbrens will have a chance to absorb a lot of that energy before the shocks reach their on-rod bumps.

Mildly Demented...

He wouldn't be hitting the bump stop if the U-bolts were hitting something.

I'm pretty sure the bump stop comes down in the middle of the u bolts, on the axle (or in the middle of the plate in this case since it's a flip kit), if it came down else where, that would defeat the purpose, but I reserve the right to be wrong, just seems like a bump stop would be lined up with the axle, and not off kilt on the bolts (even on a non flipped OEM configuration), as that would defeat the purpose.

when it flexes out, the u bolts hit first.

Is that with the full SES kit? Meaning using the harder "puck" spacer also, or just the compressible parts of the kit?
