Guys, I need some honest feedback on this subject (great thread, BTW)...
I just ordered the Poly High Steer Kit but I discovered after ordering it that I MUST use 3" bumpstops or the track bar will hit the frame rail (totally my fault - they indicate this on their website and I just missed it). Essentially, this is due (I'm paraphrasing what I was told so forgive me if I'm off a bit) to flipping the drag link and using their track bar relocation bracket. Essentially it raises both of these items 3" higher than they were before (to match geometry, etc.).. If the bumpstop isn't at least 3", the track bar will strike the frame rail on the passenger side (when bottomed out)..
My lift kit came with 2" bumpstops so it seems to me that I'm losing 1 full inch of up-travel. Oh, and YES I do flex my Jeep to its MAX. It has been suggested that I may not even be hitting the 2" bumpstops (I may already be limited to the 3" "position" by the shocks or something) but for the purpose of this question, I am (initially) going to assume that I do flex all the way to the 2" bumpstop. I LOVE the way my Jeep performs (particularily on the Rubicon Trail last November) and I do NOT want to give up any flex!
The guys at PP have been great - knowledgable, patient, very nice, helpful, etc. but I would appreciate some other opinions on the subject.
Would it be stupid to run this with only 2" bumpstops? If/when I do bottom out, it would be at a very slow speed/on the trail (right?).
