    Trim the bump stops. Take about half an inch off the top (non-tapered) part. Seriously - everyone does that with the TCKRs.

    Also, just stepping the front up to 500lbs. would yield an 11% increase in load bearing. That's not insignificant - it's equivalent to raising your car .33 inches if you run the same height. Personally, I'd trim the bump stop and up the rate to 500lbs. You clearly need it.
