So they are in the front? And it's the upper? Upper fronts do not have bar pins....

Im trying to figure out how much bump stopping I need. I flexed on an rti ramp but my suspension was at full flex before the tires were rubbing. Im thinking its the shocks bottoming out. They are 2012 jk rubi shocks which should have enough travel.

You can buy BPE's, which will move the mount some. But, the best thing to do is to just make your own mounts.

Take your shock out, fully extend it, measure how much shaft is showing. No homo.

With shock fully extended, measure from eyelet to eyelet, then compress the shock and do the same thing.
