bumpstop?

See that ugly rusted up thing inside the spring? I need to replace that, its horrifying to look at. I believe that is the bumpstop? please correct me if I'm wrong, I'm new at this. I have a stock set up, what do I need off of a site like quadratec to just get something a bit better looking in there without breaking the bank.

you need nothing from quadratec.

what you need is a wire brush and a rattle can of paint from your local hardware store.

If the jounce bumper is deteriorating, you can buy new ones from somewhere like here:

Repair Parts: MoparOnlineParts.com

But they're kind of expensive for what they are. If they really need replaced, I'd either go to a local junk yard and buy a handful for a few dollars or check here:

D A V E Y S J E E P S . C O M - Parts Specials

If you search that page for bump stop, you'll see the listing for TJ bump stops for $10 a pair.

Thanks. lol $15 dollars is not expensive. I just payed $168 for the ones on my Duramax. Granted they were upgraded versions made from poly and also heavier duty.

No, $15 isn't expensive, but there is no way I'd pay $15/piece plus shipping (so over $60) for four jounce bumpers when I can get them for probably $1/piece at a local junk yard. I'll take any chance I can get to save $56+ for the next Jeep mod.
