Just the top spacer, no preload. It's the BDS 4" kit spacer, same height as the RC one I had replaced with it.If it's happening without the sway bar i'll look into the strut setting.
From the pics you posted it seems you're using the 4th notch so that should be 1.2"
How is the spacer situation setup in your case, Do you have a top spacer only ? or top spacer + preload spacer ? what's the size on the spacers ?
Have you done the droop test per post#9 ? Curious to see how much can you droop and what's the angle on your UCA's and CV axels when the wheels are in the air.
See Post #25 for droop test, roughly 3.5" droop, both tires off the ground. BJ angles didn't look too bad and I didn't think to get a CV pic. I will though, but they didn't look too bad either, nothing appeared to be binding.
I hear ya. Really wish there were good dedicated suspension shops around here. You're spot on with the small bumps, but it's bad on big dips and bumps as well. Not so bad with the sway bar on though. It was ok all around after changing upper control arms and having wheel alignment. Then literally the next day it was like a different truck again. That's the part I can't explain.I second the droop test to see what you got. The BDS 4” kits want the struts to be turned 180 degrees not the case on the 6” so with the 4” there is not much wiggle room with the geometry. The problem is it’s an older kit and really has to be diagnosed one part at a time. Is it not bad on big bumps but small bumps feel like you have a solid suspension?(meaning small bumps feel exaggerated and like someone kit the front bumper with a bat)
