    What bump stop heights are y'all SOA folks run'n.

    The top of my drag link is 2.5" off my spring. I was think'n a 4" might work.

    TIA,

    It really depends on where your front axle is.. my drag link & t/r are VERY close to the springs, but I run a 4" bump because the center of the axle is right under the high point of the frame..

    I have my front spring flipped if that helps.

    what PS conversion?

    I run bumps for the axle to keep the axle/tire clear, and one custom bump ahead of the pitman swing for the Scout PS...works great.

    ~2" uptravel or so at the bump...not much...

    saginaw eliminates the issue with the pitman, which is nice.....

    just made an actual measurement....

    frame to end of bump = 4"

    end of bump to contact point = 2"

    with the SOA, flat-stock across the top of the u-bolt plate center, and a 1-1/2" round 1" tall extension....hard to describe, and (of course) my camera is sitting on my desk at work.....
