Positioning the new droop-stops properly is critical. They will limit extension travel if they are mounted too high and they'll allow the suspension to over-extend if they're mounted too low, which could damage the suspension. The polyurethane bump-stops will compress slightly, so we planned to shim the bump-stops with fender washers to dial-in the full-extension stopping point. After welding the mounts to the frame, we masked off the new arms and sprayed a few more coats of semi-gloss black paint.
