    Default My Bump Stop Thread

    Something I've been needing to do for some time was to bump stop my rig.

    After poking around on the Internet I found the best solution at GOJEEP!

    Hockey pucks and metal tubing. Thanks to rguignard I have the square metal tubing and thanks to Sports Authority I now have hockey pucks!



    I purchased 12 hockey pucks from Sports Authority ONLINE for 25 shipped.

    Reading the article on GOJEEP all I need to do is glue these hockey pucks in.



    I noticed that Oreily's has spring compressors that you can borrow. So since I have a factory bump stop that has dropped into the coil, I already tried gluing it once, I'm going to remove the coil, fix that dropped bump stop. Paint the coils factory red and then install the hockey pucks. I'll have to look at it. I may have to reinstall the coil before I can install the pucks. I'd like to bolt that first puck to the base of the coil pad then glue the rest to it.

    Keep watching this thread as I will post up things that I learned and pictures as this most recent Jeep project progresses.

    Doing a little more searching this morning I found this old thread on NAXJA.org. I had forgot about this. So apparently bolting the pucks down will work.

    Well I agree with GOJEEP assessment. It doesn't matter how much you lift, you need to bump stop. The tire is going to come into contact with the fender at some point. I guess you could trim so much fender that at full coil compression it wouldn't touch, but I've already trimmed a couple of inches off of mine.

    Doing a little more research. I see that the upper front bump stops are available for the Jeep XJ.



    These are for my year XJ. 27 for a pair.

    xjtalk vendor JeepinOutfitters.com =

    I found they are also available through Payless4x4 Call the number on their ad (800-945-4294) and ask for Mark.

    You mean without bump stopping, right?

    Yes. One of the things to factor in when bump stopping is shock travel. We usually fit shocks based on the extended length of the lifted suspension. The increased length of the new shocks also means there is increased length of the collapsed shock. To protect that shock, the bump stops need to be increased to keep the shock from bottoming out.

    To add to what Steve said the one thign to always remember : You can hang from a shock and it wont hurt it if you colapse it , just once , you have already done damage to it.

    Hmmm I was planing on both.

    I didn't want to stack up 3 or 4 hockey pucks. I was going to put these on and two hockey pucks. Bad idea? I'm planning on removing the coils so I can bolt the pucks down.
