    the rubber is what holds the preload and lets it give a little so its not a violent jolt on your suspension when you launch

    im good friends with SBCpwrd and his sit about 2-3 inchs from the ground and the only problem that he has had so far that i know about is his scrapped on a big speed bump but he also had two fairly large guys in the back at that time, so that didnt help.

    yeah ive only scraped them once. the front mount is the lowest point it is roughly 4 inches off the ground. that's with belltech 3in lowering leafs. And i do not see how you could ride with a set w/o the rubber or some sort of absorbant. I slide them together before i put them on, both with the polyurethane bushing and with out and you can really tell is absorbs a lot of the shock and especial if you are using them on the street with out all the preload. I had to make my own shock mounts. i went through the books are the parts store for a stiffer shock for my drop and competition engineering said to push the bushing out of the shock and use a general spring mount that they supplied but as i looked the mount was loose with the bushing in and would be looser if i pressed it out, so we got a bolt, taped the shock mount hole, ran a nut down and locked a bolt on there and theres been no problems since. i would recommend them to anyone.
