    I see the bump stops on the lower arms. I was asking about the upper arms. my apologies I should have been more clear.

    Oh, gotcha. We skipped the upper bump stops to save a few ounces of unsprung weight and reduce complexity.

    On platforms such as Vette and 3rd and 4th Gen Camaro there are no rebound upper arm stops so we just went with that.

    Our standard non-adjustable upper a-arm has bump stops, I will post a link below. But the adjustable version they are left off as Ramey mentioned.

    I can dig it.
    is it fine to lift the front end and not support the lower control arms with them on?
    I know the hotchkis uppers use there bump stops when unloaded and it would be a bit problematic to have to tear down the front suspension if I wanna get the car on a lift.
    If thats, not a problem I might have finally found upper control arms I could justify spending the money one.
