ID:	48545Are my rear coils worn out? The truck sits level but the rear bumpstops are touching the contact point on the axle... Are these just special bumpstops that came with the lift?

    Of course, selfish me.

    according to what I've read from a few forums the bumpstops are supposed to just hover right above the contact point if not just touching it. Normal part of this fabtech setup

    Want to do something like this. Maybe some triangle plates on the side as well to keep the shocks and other parts covered.
