    Bump stops

    When grinding on rear bump stop brackets do you relocate mounting holes also ? Can see where rim is hitting ( approx 12" wheel ) on brackets . Currently running new Bilsteins and new Moogs , going for decent ride .

    I only had to grind the flange on the body down. Never had to touch the bump stops as Isimply remove them when I mount the track wheels. I have not heard of anyone relocating the bolt holes, but I suppose you could. Other option would be to attach a bump stop to the axle using aftermarket pieces.
