    Do you think this could be avoided with an aftermarket lower control arm?

    Yes. I heartily endorse overkill, but have you priced those?

    I can confirm that the 2-3" lift version requires clearance of the lower arm a little bit.

    In my case the 0-2" seems fine at full droop.

    I had to trim mine as well.

    at what point does a fellow look at rebuilding these shocks? I’ve had them on for well over 50k miles and haven’t noticed any leaking or diminishing ride quality.

    although I may look at a softer spring for the front. The coil over springs at 700 pounds are very firm

    Depending on when the dampening quality starts to diminish.
    A dealer in Canada I've spoke with suggested the bushings tend to go 1st.
    Cheap to replace and you can press them in and out easily with the correct tools and procedure.
    I'll probably run mine for several years and do periodic inspections before deciding when to ship them in. Would really depend on the usage and overall conditions. I like to inspect monthly and try to keep the shafts clean if possible. During the winter I wipe them down with a light rust preventative compound or wax if they look grungy.

    My truck runs empty 90% of the time and I love the handling with 700lb springs. Find they help prevent leaning and assist in preventing the shocks from blowing through the stroke in higher speed or rough cornering.
