I don't doubt that what I'm about to ask has not been answered at some point in one of the hundreds of previous posts in this thread. And I don't doubt that there is in fact a perfectly logical answer, but here goes.
What real world off road situation are you simulating with this "full bump" test?
In other words, what's the idea behind removing coil springs which would otherwise be installed during real world flexing situations? What's the point of checking for clearance at a flex angle beyond that which a (fully assembled) suspension system is even capable of reaching. Why is it not enough to simply just disconnect the sway bar links and creep across a deep trench diagonally? If the entire weight of the Jeep is balanced 50/50 on two diagonally opposed wheels to the point of seesawing back and forth, and there are no rubbing/binding issues, isn't that enough of a clearance test? What am I missing here?
BTW, I'm finally going out this weekend with my new Currie adjustable track bar
-D30 w/Riddler cover
-Currie adj. TB (new to the mix)
-No TB drop bracket (new to the mix)
-Stock Pittman arm (new to the mix)
-Currie standard length adj. control arms.
I'm not sure what my bump stop length is off hand. But I know it's a hair too short. When I cut the wheel all the way left or right during flex the outside edge of my front tires just lightly kisses the back face of the wheel well. Like so:
