Teraflex Front Lower Bump Stop

Can anyone explain how to put these on? Maybe with pictures? I cant find anything anywhere.

(Lift isn't on yet, I wanna get all my ducks in a row before install)
This didn't come with any nuts or bolts or anything. Shipped from the Q

Mine came with upper bump-stops. I don't know where the ones you have would fit honestly.

These are what came with mine. You pull the factory upper ones out, put these in there and then put the factory ones up inside the TF ones

I was told by others that 'my stock uppers are fine' and to get lowers.
It somehow bolts into the coil on the bottom

You have absolutely no space to put that block.

I agree. Not only no space, but what would it bolt to ?

I went out and checked mine and can't see any way that it would bolt to anywhere on the lower coil seat unless you drilled a hole in it like there is in the rear where the retainer plate goes in the spring

I forget but .... Either the front or the rear there is a hole. TF supplied a spring retainer that bolts through it.
Forget what side.
Believe it is the rear ?

They should have supplied a tool ??

We got them out to install my spacers but could not get back in. Tool was at the house.

yep. the hardest part for me was getting the nut in there while keeping it level and getting it to catch on the threads and start screwing onto the bolt. such a pain

I borrowed these photos...I think this is a TJ but same principal.

The bolts should be self tapping. You will drill a slightly smaller hole than the diameter of the bolt. If they're not self tapping then just drill hole same size a bolt and secure with a nut.

Personally I used hockey pucks for my lower bump stops. They were like two bucks each from the sports store. They are exactly 1" thick and can be stacked if needed.
