Default XXXS droop...........

Quick question, anyone have a way to keep the front bumper from pushing/flexing while setting the droop. I can't go past 3.5mm B4 the bumper starts to flex.

Thanks in advance.

Set the droop first, then set your ride height - it sounds like you are pushing against the springs!! The bumper will flex a little bit if you have the old style bumpers - the newer stiff ones don't flex at all

The new bumpers will still flex if you run the low roll center blocks and have the preload adjusters cranked down kinda far as you would have to with small foam tires. To fix this problem run the small droop screws in front when using the low roll center blocks or cut down teh ones you have in.

That is something you are suposed to do when you convert to low roll center anyways.

If i remember right, I put the short screws in the front, and cut the longer ones for the rear, so I did not need to buy a second bumper set.
