Front Bump Stop Install

Anyone have a trick for installing new bumpstops in the front? I am having trouble getting them all the way snapped into the cup.
I'm about to put a jack under them and "press" them in....

Are they extended stops or something? I bought some RE bump stops that replaced the OEM ones. Problem is the material is so hard it wouldn't push in no matter what I tried. Ended up taking a razor and trimming out three places where the factory "spots" are... If that makes any sense, look in the cup and you'll see what I mean. After that and a little grease they went in with a hammer.
