What’s the consensus on whether Timbren active off roads are tall enough to run longer shocks (like for 2.5” lift+)? In other words, just use Timbrens instead of extended bumpstops. They squish down quite a bit, so it is hard to directly compare the compressed height to the stock hard bumps.
I haven’t experienced any issues that suggest my shocks ever get fully compressed. They are the 5100 bils length for 2-3” lift (according to nisstec). The reason I ask is when I installed my lift shackles, I noticed that I still had at least an inch more downtravel in the suspension than the shocks allowed at full extension. Brackets and lines still seemed ok. Might get a size longer when I replace them to get additional travel.
