Yes that was the reason. And to make sure stuff wasn't going to hit and interfere etc.

Had to clearance cv stops and was able to get an exact measurement of what my driveshaft needs to be for length and slip.

And yes I mounted the bumps where at full bump they will be at the one side of the pad, and when they hit they will be on the other. You can see they are off centered from the pads

The shackle moves the axle just about an inch back on bump travel
