Re: Wheeler's Superbumps vs. Stock Bump Stop Comparison
I have the Superbumps and bottomed out pretty good through some big whoops/jumps a few weeks ago. I already have the 1/4" and 3/8" spacers, just hadn't installed them yet. I still think the Superbumps are a good investment, as has been mentioned they may have changed to a harder compound a few years ago and the failures in AU were with the original softer compound. Can also add their shim spacers if needed. I always heard the Timbrens, or at least the rear ones, were way too stiff and engaged too soon.
FYI Wheeler now makes rear Superbumps. Their wedsite claims they stop axle travel at the same spot as the stock bumps, but they also look to be able to accept spacers between the bump and the bracket if needed.
