The factory blocks do not go back in. Im betting you did not cut the factory bumpstops, cause theres no way your hitting your wheel wells, unless you have huge tires. Thats probably what your hitting. Shocks can really go either way, but the "chrome" should go to the top.

Hmm, well a majority of us on 4/7 arent running bumpstops at all. and your notched. Helper bags would be my only suggestion, cause Im not really sure how or why your hitting your wheelwells on factory 17's. Im on factory 20's with 275/55 tires and have never hit my wheelwells. But Im not notched either. Do you have a crew cab?

What kind of shocks are y'all running on the rear? I wanted belltech but they're on back order and I can't wait for them. Does Monroe MA743 shocks sound right to y'all?

I have some of those Monroes and they are okay but then again I don't have much of a comparison. I have been thinking about changing over to the belltechs, was going to compare the ride of Angelos truck with the belltechs to mine with the monroes but never have.

Angelo's rides pretty smooth for how low it is. But the drop is going on Sunday so I have to go with Monroe's. At least for now cause I can't get belltechs here by Sunday.
