So about 6 months ago or so I installed my 2" Zone BB. I haven't had any issue with it at all and considering how cheap it was I can't complain even if I did
But I have a quick question for all those in the know around here
Should 2" bump stop extensions really be added to the Jk in the front???? Reason I ask is because I was under the Jeep today checking all the components torque, and noticed that my factory Bump stops are all chewed to shit now. Had to order new ones today. No biggie considering they are only like $10.00.
Anyway out of curiosity I went to the dealer today and checked out how much space there was between the bump stop and the pad on a factory rig and compared that to what I had with the Zone kit. What a difference. Factory was about 3-4 inches without a tape measure of course
and mine with the extensions was maybe an 1-1/2". What gives???? is this normal???
I am begining to wonder if my front end sagged out or something? You would think that if I had 3-4 inches factory, that after a 2" lift you would need 2" bumpstop extensions.
Does this make sense to anyone??? I took the extensions out today and it does seem much better now but wonder if there will be an adverse effect in the long run?
Any ideas are welcome and appreciated.
The factory coil spring was never designed to collapse farther than the factory wheel travel, so not installing extended bump stops may drastically reduce the life of your factory coil springs.
Is this just a load of crap???? right off the Zone Website. Cause their bumpstop extensions sure reduced the life of my bumpstops LOL!!!
