1-3” rear lift shocks and bump stops

Categories: Off-Road

Sometimes we get asked about bump stops in conjunction with rear lift shocks.

1-3” lift shocks compress and extend more than factory, by getting extended bump stops the life time of the shock will increase since at full flex/compression the internals of the shock get damage little by little.
The bump stop will stop the axle before the shock hits its internal bump stop without damaging valves and seals.
Look at this picture and you can see the Timbren bump stop pretty much stopping the axle from over compressing before the shock touches itsinternal bump stop and valves and on the opposite side is protecting the shock from over extending.
