So I’ve done some fairly heavy wheeling the last few days and my SPC UCAs have actually punched though my fender well under compression in my 13 LC. Has anyone else had this issue?

Factory bump stops. They were definitely fully engaged.

@ga12r1 I do not have any good info but came to say this checked out. "Relatively Infamous" :cool:

If your shocks can handle the compressed length, cut out the damaged area and weld in a "bowel" to allow maximum stuffing. Combine that with progressive/active bump stops and Raptor, please hold my beer. J/k

Everything seems to check out. We did a parking lot alignment last night because the eccentrics sheared off the alignment tabs. My drivers door is hitting the front fender a bit when opening but I’m sure that can be worked out.
I ran Black Bear today and all is well.

Oh and I need to get another spare because the front passenger tire blew.

Wow, that was some landing then. Pretty sure the lower control arm functions as the stop. In this case, the suspension either traveled past that limiter, or the body deflected downward further into the frame than expected, or both.

Wow. I have never thought about the body moving downwards.
