    I removed the bumpstops on my car to run 17x11 wheels and never had any issues with not having them... just dont go jump the car and you'll be fine...

    I bought replacements from gmpartsdirect.com

    I wouldn't advise removing your bump stops either.

    Yea I would expect the 17x11 tires to hit before anything else does

    if you get new ones, get the z28 version of them... not the SS version of it.
    the z28 version is better, and does a better job... they are more progressive and pointy.. the SS are very flat.

    Why does everyone think that you can't run 11's with the stops? You can, it's not a problem at all, I do it. The only time the two might hit is when the axle is hanging, like when the car is on a lift. Just don't start the car and put in gear and it's fine. DO NOT RUN WITHOUT REAR BUMPSTOPS unless you like chasing you tail. Funny things happen to handling when you really pound on the rear suspension, and you break things too.
