does anyone know if i'll have a problem with an xtreme with a 3 inch block drop in the rear if i cut off the dump stops and put stock shock on it? i dont want it to bottom out into the frame i'm not exactly sure how far the suspension travels in the rear going over potholes and bumps but i cant stand the ride of the nitro-drop shocks but they are the only shocks that keep me from slamming the dumps....so i want to put stock shocks back on it and cut the bumps off all the way to the frame...i know i've seen people do it before on this forum......thanks!

The bump stops are gone on mine,( 4/4 drop) and I have the ZQ8 shocks, so yours would only be .5" lower, I think it would be fine. Yours has a factory 1.5" + 3" for total of 4.5" I installed a short rubber bumpstop above the axle, in case of a bottom out, but it does not bottom.

install the blocks if you hit to much, you will know all about it. then cut the bump stops off.

so you cut your bumps off all the way to the frame on the zq8 and it doesnt hit the frame at all, even over a big bump??...i mean i dont think it will cuz that would mean there would have to be 6" of travel or so and something else would probably hit first...
