I have 4" blocks in the rear with a pulled leaf and I was wondering if I cut the bumpstop brackets off will my frame hit the axle?

ya, c-notch would be perfect. but if you arent crazy about cutting your frame...get some low profile bumpstops and bolt them directly onto the frame over your axle just incase you do hit

It depends on the way your truck sits. That setup will give you approx 5.5 drop in the back. Some people go down to a 6 in the back and do not notch. And they only hit on larger bumps. I have dropped plenty of trucks and it just depends on the truck. I got lucky with my 2 s10s and did not need to notch until bags. Best thing I say to do is measure after you cut the brackets out. If you have 2 or more inches of travel and good shocks in the rear you should be ok. If not or if you find yourself bottoming out a lot, then just notch it. I do not recommend cutting the frame unless you really have a need to.

Oh you were talking about the brackets. I thought we were talking about notching after cutting them out. Yeah you will need to remove the brackets.
