Thanks for that, I saw an install video of what was called a Belltech kit, being installed, it turned out to be a McGaughys. Due to this video, I actually cut the cups off of my rear housing to install the new bumpstops, but guess what? My new ones were shortened bumpstops from Belltech, that just plugged into the original cup. ,... havent hit anything yet, but don't feel that comfortable, just in case.

I hope I can buy these from Mcgaughys idividually, I just superglued the new bumpstops from belltech to the original bucket locations, how strong do you think that is????

Man that 250 was awesome, I would have still kept it if it was me, or did you just need a new project. I am exactly the same way about my vehicles, total package. I was looking to do similar duties with this truck. Dump about a little over $10,000 into it, except for the stereo. I kinda got out of doing mega systems about 10 years ago, believe it or not, stock stereos usually do it for me nowadays.(holy crap my age is catching up to me.) I would be really happy if I can just bust into the 12's with this truck in the quarter, this as a daily driver for me would be great, then onto modding my Jeep. I think once they break the code, and can do real tunning on the truck, I will add the longtubes, and 85MM throttle, and one of the superchargers available, maybe a turbo if STS comes out with one for our trucks. If this don't do it, I might just bite the bullit and do a head and cam setup also.

So once again, sorry for blabbing on, but how has the traction and control been with the new 4 links, or do you need some more time to tell. I set my Hellwig in the rear to the middle setting. With the new Hellwig in the front my truck feels real balanced, but have not pushed it hard enought to tell if there is still oversteer or not. The max setting on the rear bar made it a little oversteer happy in my opinion. I am curios to see if the new control arms help tighten things up a bit more and that it will make a difference with how the rear bar is setup.
