No Bumpstops?

My Jeep did not come with rear bumpstops. Instead I had those inflatable airbags that go inside the shocks. Bummer cause now that I'm installing my lift, I don't have bumpstops and I'm slightly confused on what to do.

Now for the 2" spaces that come with my Zone 4" lift kit, the spaces attach to the top and the bumpstop sits below that. The spring rests on the bottom of the bumpstop but doesn't go over that. Correct?

Another quickie. I've got 2 sets of sway bars, one set is longer then the other, which set is the rear set?

you need to get some stock bumpstop cups and jounce bumpers. ZJ front's will fit in the TJ rear, so check the junkyard.

Awesome info thanks! So if I follow this info correctly that I stole from some member



Where does my spacer bumperstop that came with my lift kit sit in relation to the spring. Is it sitting outside on top of the coil spring or does it sit inside of the coil spring?

It should go in between what the picture is pointing to as the "Spring Tower" and the bump stop cup. What they do is space down where the bump stop is to compensate for the taller springs.

Namaste,

Allen

So I'm still having trouble locating the proper parts. My rear bumper has nothing at all, no shock tower, no bumper cups, nothing etc. What parts am I missing from the rear coil that I'll need to locate and does anyone have any online sites to check. My junkyards are fresh out.

kinda had similar problem. went to install my lift (zone 2inch spacers) started with rear and my bump stop was dryrotted and broke apart in my hands and the bump stop cup was distorted in shape from rust. these are located inside the spring. went to jeep dealer and they had them in stock. call around to the jeep dealers. cups cost me $12 each. expensive part was the rubber bumper thing $49. good luck. I've decided to do mine another day when I have a lift available and air tools.
