DIY Bumpstops

Is it worth it to buy bumpstops or just make them myself?

I think with my 2in BDS LIFT I could buy one set of rokmen and have enough for the front and rear.

Do you mean bumpstop extensions? I bought aluminum round bar stock in 2" and 3" diameters. I'm in it $30 as they didn't have any scrap in the bin that suited my needs. You can do it cheaper with body lift pucks, or you could buy them pre made but I think that's the most expensive option.

Yes sorry. Bump stop extensions.

Is it better to use a nut and bolt on the spring perch or drill/tap?

I drilled and tapped my front spring perches, and bolted on 3" round hockey pucks using a stainless bolt, and 2 1/2" fender washers over them. I later found some 3" round aluminum bar stock that I picked up to cut to the proper size, but the pucks have been holding up so well, I haven't bothered doing it yet. Here's a picture of the original. It now has two stacked.

A great cheap option is poly performance body lift pucks. I bought them in 3 inch lengths and cut them down to size with a chop saw.

if you can fit a nut on the passenger front side, you'll be a miracle worker with superman strength attached to little tiny girl fingers.

..........normal people on the other hand will need to drill and tap.
