Yes, thanks that's a good point. Shocks are on the list for sure... but springs were first, which let to the bumps. I'm pretty certain I can benefit from the hydro bumps regardless if I had expensive valved Fox shocks or not, and I don't mind the hole in the floor, so I went for it. Still deciding on what to do shock wise, ideally I'd like to raise the lower mount and raise the upper mount, but the upper mount can't be raised without going into the body again.. and I don't think I'm up for another body penetration, and the cons outweigh the pros of raising just the lower mount (travel vs ground clearance).I guess my thoughts are go with quality shocks that you can custom valve first then add hydro bumps if needed.
My fox shocks with the foam bumpstops work great. Granted I dont jump or do highspeed stuff. I literally just got home from a weekend camping trip where the fire roads where in horrible shape. I was still able to maintain speed and keep a comfortable ride (relatively) and if I did hit a deep pothole it wasnt bad at all. Its your truck and your money. I just figured you already had some decent shocks on there.
Allow is the right word"handle" or "allow"? They dont allow nearly the flex you could achieve without them
Well you have shaft stops, so you can't bottom out?Interesting. I have less up travel than you and I dont bottom out my shocks.
