    So far, it's holding up well. It's basically the same China track bar that TeraFlex has been selling for years. I would prefer not to have run it but it was cheap, available on Amazon and I needed something in a pinch. I hope to replace it with something better in the near future.

    JL JOURNAL : Bumping Up to a Rancho 3.5 Inch Lift

    Were you getting your drive shaft to rub on the gas tank skid plate before this lift? Or did that only start after you installed this lift?

    We were getting the rub on the gas tank after installing these coils.

    Bump stops

    So you switched bump stops with this spring change, was there an issue with the bump stop that was already installed?... Is bump stop height dictated by wheel/tire combination or are there other factors that need to be considered?

    You typically want to run as much bump stop extension as you have lift. While there are benefits to running bump stop extensions like helping to mitigate rubbing of the fenders, the main reason to run them is to help prevent the over compression of your coils. As in - compressing them so much that they no longer return to their original height.

    Thanks, that makes sense. I wasn’t thinking about spring damage, only damage larger tires would do to the body
