I think I figured out why my rear ride sucks:
The axle is hitting the bottom of the bump stop over bumps, my Ground Force kit did not come with bump stops. I have about 1.5" clearance between the axle and stock factory bump stop.

Trim it or get pancake style bump stops

Thanks Keg, I think total the grill alone was $860, bumper was around 800-900, and then paint would probably be 300-400. So around $2100 total... Its a pretty expensive endeavor. These Harley parts are stupid expensive. The street scenes bumper and another grill could look just as nice for half the price if done right. But hey if you have some cash its differently a unique look, and Im happy with it

I suggest the Belltech bump stops, they are soft like the stock ones. The polyurethane ones other companies use are not much better that hitting the steel frame.

@azmidget91 do you know where I could buy a pair? I checked amazon and didn't find any, it seems like you have to buy the whole kit to get the bump stops.

Belltech sells them separately here: http://www.belltech.com/bump-stop-kit.html

I also saw them on Jegs with free shipping at the same price.

I found these on amazon, are these the ones the fit the F150? They say universal but idk if they will fit. Also, do these come in pairs or is the price for just one bump stop?
