    So i have been reading that the bump stops on our tahoes should be resting on the control arms-mine are not even close and seem to be in ok shape.It does seem a little floaty in the front end thats why i looked under to check everything.I have 2 inch keys in front to level-1 seems almost maxed the other torsion bolt halfway.If i remember i did that to get it exact height.Am i missing something here.I was going to replace them but if they are not touching maybe their is a problem.I called a chevy mechanic and he said they shouldn't touch just sitting their????????

    If you have the front raised from stock (leveled), then the bump stops won't be touching

    That will affect your front suspension as I’m sure you’re noticing. There’s ways to raise them. You can get taller bump stops or raise the mount. The lifted guys should be able to help more, I’m lowered so I had the opposite problem and had to shave mine.

    Just replaced mine today. In case you're wondering, I have a 6" lift.

    We are talking the front. They’re actually called jounce stops and act as a fulcrum for the torsion bars.
