Here are some of Punisher at various heights. One of the advantages of BC is you can move it up and down when you wish.
Get Mysti out of the shop tomorrow. Hood dents gone and new front facia and passenger-side grilles. Having the front arrowhead emblem and bump removed. (A nose job.). Anyway, while she was up on the rack, I was looking around underneath. I see some damage to the exhaust flex coupler and a couple other spots from rubbing over speed bumps. She's lowered 1-1/2", and I supposed she's settled a bit more than that. I have BC coil overs as well.
Rob, did you have The Punisher realigned each time you changed the ride height?

I believe bump steer is a factor af alignment rather than ride height - specifically toe-in and camber. There are several threads here that discuss bump steer.
Yes, but changing the ride height changes the relative angles of all the suspension parts, moving them of of their designed 'sweet spots'. Thus a bump can have a more extreme effect on toe and camber angles than it would at the original ride height.
Not an expert here, so don't know that it WILL have such and effect, just that it could.
