It looks to me that this is more of a problem if you have a Dana 44

with the springs & jounce bumpers removed, and the shocks & track bar installed, push the axle to full bump (both sides fully compressed at the same time) using a floor jack, and take plenty of detailed pictures.

If you can't get the bumpstop cup to touch the base of the spring/bumpstop pad, you don't have enough bumpstop extension - and you have suspension inteferences.

considering how long the RC 2.5" lift has been out one would think that they would eliminate the bumpstop that they put on the shocks and include a set of bumpstops instead.

I just finished putting my lift on, it looks like my rough country adj. control arm and bracket clear my front diff. I'll upload pictures later
