Default Rubber bumper clearance and travel.

My front suspension has been feeling off latley so I took a look under the front end and I noticed that the rubber stops are almost touching the metal , about an inch clearance. That doesn't leave much room for shock travel. Is that normal or do I need new coil springs?

Went to take pics of my stock front end that is feeling "off". While laying there looking things over, noticed a 2" by 1" by 3 feet long metal bar that is located under transmission. Bolted with two bolts on each side to the frame, only mine had just one bolt and was hanging about an inch below the mounting bracket!

The only thing I can think of is that when I had my engine rebuilt last year they forgot to put it back right. How non-professional is that?

And when I got my truck back from them they didn't even bother to install an air filter!

For $3,700 they should be able to give a new air filter. But I guess that's just the way they do business at the "House of Engines" in Pomona California.
