Need help doing rear spacers!!

Got the front done with no problems. On the back the directions say to install spacer over top bump stop tube. Do I take the bump stop tube off or what? The spacer is solid with no hole in it. Any help is sincerely appreciated

The spacer needs to have a hole in it to fit around the bump stop. I am wondering if you have a wrong part. The front and rear spacer if I remember correctly are the same. Here are the ones I purchased and installed. http://www.4wheelerssupply.com/catal...oducts_id/1860

Four $35-40 shock absorbers and four $10 polyurethane spacers for $325? I am in the wrong business.

Those rear spacers will make you remove the bump stop in the rear, which is a little concerning. Either way the center post will be installed pointing down.

The bump stop has a bolt in the middle of it after you remove the rubber part. Try removing the bump stop and you may not need to cut a hole in the spacer.

I have the tube removed, and then that is where I am having a problem figuring it out. I thought someone may of seen them like this before.

Thanks, I will call the company tomorrow and see if they can offer any help

Even at half price, it is too much. You can a RE BB for 240.00

I just completed my BB kit and the rear pucks are the exact same size and dimensions as the front pucks. If they are not, I would contact the place of purchase. Once you get the correct rear pucks, to have to remove the bumpstops and the bumpstop cups and it will slide over the center post.

You nailed it. I called them this morning at 7 and the tech told me the same thing. I thought so but the damn directions said to put over the bump stop. Anyway they are on and it looks pretty good. Now for some tires
