I've been running TF 2.5" lift kit with TF shocks for about a year now. I also added 3/4" Poly spacers to the kit. I have few questions about this set up and now I am coming back to the questions I had at the beginning, but never got to work them out :).
1. Do you run both bump stops (OEM and TF) as required per instruction? The upwards travel only has like 2" of travel due to the double bump stop set up.
2. Anyone tried to run with only stock bump stops?

3. Did you run different shocks than those that supplied with TF full 2.5" kit?

4. I always thought of getting longer shocks, but never got to the point of actually measuring how much longer shocks I can have on this set up.

5. Also, I noticed recently that my front shocks are leaking fluid. Is this a common problem with the TF shocks?

1. Yes, i too notice the small amount of up travel.

2. No, i haven't done the measurements to see if i could run without the bump stop extensions but the RK 2.5" lift kits doesn't come with any bump stop extensions.

3. Im running Bilstien 5100's for 2" of lift.

I have the same set up currently but without the spacers. I don't even get close to the top of the shocks. I've heard their bump stops are aggressive. Apparently so! I am about to sell this kit for something else.

Thank you for the input. Dam it, to take these TF spacers off I need to pretty much re-do whole disassemble and re-assemble of the kit.
