    Torque Thrust II's with 315's?

    I just got a call from the place that is adding my NOS and power tunning my 98 T/A. He noticed that when you jack up the car by the frame that the tires hit the rubber stop and its metal mounting plate? He said that if I ever go fast over a dip in the road and the suspension becomes fully extended that the tires would blow out from the metal bracket cutting them. Does this bracket have to be removed for safety when using 315's in the back ? I had the wheels and tires put on by Discount Tire and they never mentioned this?

    Thanks, Jeff

    if you have the Jounce spacers, a little spacer between the rubber and the axle... remove it.
    on top of that, i cut the outer half of the bumpstop so that it cleared.
