4point I'm sorry, but thats just funny..........

I would figure factory bumps would have been OK.

cnolan76 Thanks guys, I appreciate it!

Jerry Bransford The gap between the top and bottom bumpstops should be slightly shorter than the distance between the top of your tire and bottom of the fender flare.

cnolan76 How long should they be? Should I just cut them in half?

TeeJay no worries. I'd hack saw them without any reservations. if they get destroyed whats the worst thing that happened? your bump stops that you couldn't use still cant be used? who cares- in the words of Mitch Headberg - "F*** it, cut 'em up!"

cnolan76 Thanks Teejay

cnolan76 I bought them from someone who bought them from Tuff Country. They will not exchange anything because I didn't purchase them from the company. Would it hurt to remove them and attack them with a hacksaw? I wouldn't think that wou

BARKDOG67 I might be wrong but it sounds like your bumpstops are too long when I did my 2" lift I was only going to extend my bumpstops by two inches did those bumpstops come with your lift or did you order it seperately.
04-06-2009 07:54 PM
Jerry Bransford Those 4" bump stops are too long for a 2" lift. Whoever installed or recommended them screwed up.

TeeJay pics. or there isn't really a problem.

Bump stops bottoming out

First off, thanks to everyone for answering my questions about reinstalling my coil springs, now I have a new problem.

Sunday I installed the 2". BB lift on my Jeep and every bump that I hit, my front end jumps off the ground. Upon closer inspection, the extended bump stops are bottoming out and making the front end bounce. These bump stops are aprox. 4 inches long and only about 2 inches from the bottom. This can't be normal can it?
