A 2” bump mounted off the frame so it hits the lower arms still controls +6” of travel at the wheels. In extreme cases I have even seen trucks with them hitting at ride height and controlling 8-9” of wheel travel in Wich the bump stops literally do nothing. Tuning wise it either feels like a brick when it does hit the lower arms because you need a ton of PSI for them to actually act as a bump stop, or it’s set soft to not mess with the shock and it doesn’t really do much except stop metal on metal contact. In every case I have tuned it dents lower arms because of the leverage the tires and arms have on them. Maybe if you hung them 8” off the side of the frame it wouldn’t be near as bad. Ideally bump stops should only control the last 2-4” of wheel travel.Please elaborate on this! I’m interested in your experienced take.
If you don’t have room to mount them off the uppers and spindles, than run foam shaft bumps on your coilovers. I have tuned Multiple trucks with those guys and they are magical (with proper coilover valving)
