Need a Spot
Howdy. I'm the new owner of a 1995 SR5 extended cab T100 pickup. I've been searching through the T100 posts and have found this forum to be wealth of information. I've been very happy with the truck so far but have a few questions.

How much clearance should there be between the bump stop and its stopping point? This is assuming a stock truck with no torsion bar modifications.

What is the proper ride height for an unmodified stock T100?


Thanks,

Brian

Only # I recall was the stock wheel (16") to fender lip measurement - I had 14.5" before... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

for the front control arms there isnt that much space stock. just a matter of a couple of inches. even with a suspension lift kit they come with new bumpstops that make the travel limited.

Thanks guys for the info. Right now I've got about 3/4" of an inch clearance to the upper stop and 1.5" at the lowers. Does this sound about right?

i think it might have a little to do with your torsion bars too. 3/4 of an inch seems a little tight but if you dont hit them when ur going over a speed bump i guess ur alright. if u wanna find out if ur hitting get a little grease and put it on ur bump stop and if there ends up being a smudge on ur control arm u might wanna crank up ur torsion bars a couple of turns.

Other direction. Down.
Or hit it all with a plasma cutter and leaf or link it.

It doesn't sound all that bad to me. Alignment shops sometimes fiddle with the tbars to get the camber right, also. I had cranked my bars to fit 32s and installed low profile bumps and could just get my fingers in there without getting them stuck. The ride was fine imho, too.
