bumpstops

what size bumpstops should go with a 3 in. lift and long travel shocks? Anyone know where I could get some cheaply?

THANKS!

4" pump stops. You can buy some from summit racing but you have to build brackets for them to fit. NSO and SG sells bump stops too.

bumps

I have a sg stage3 and external fr shocks. it would be very easy to either weld a spacer between old mount and use longer installation screws, or just tack weld a boxed steel spacer onto platform where bumpstops bottom out on axle.
remember the dist under stops should be smaller than remaining compression dist on shock when truck is level. But also remember that when the suspension is cycled through max articulation, the origional bumpstop may now be to short thus allowing shock to bottom--so it may take some trial and error.
