First you will need to flex it out to see how much bumpstop you will need to add. You can buy extended stops or weld some extensions in.

When I was painting my undercariage a couple of months ago I noticed that I only actually had one bumpstop (front right) and that the others were completely rusted away. Should I replace them? I don't do any offroading that really flexes that much. *shrug*

Bumps stops are not a high ticket item to replace. Even if you don't do "any off roading that really flexes that much"... you are smart to have them. Bump stops benefits well documented. Spend a little $ now to safeguard from breakdowns and costly repairs later. I hate to be this guy BUT do a search and checkout the posts on this topic.

Instead of being a parrot and repeating the" do a search" routine like a bunch of others how about you share what you found thats well documented, otherwise their is no reason for a discussion forum we will all just reference back to the site via a search that doesnt work and never mix and mingle

You're right. I should have taken the time to provide links and details on the risks of running without bump stops. Please excuse me for being lazy and not going the extra mile to answer this post more throughly. I appericate you taking the time to point out the errors of my ways. If more people would call out people like me, this would be a better place to gather information and/or mix and mingle. I will certainly re-double my efforts to improve my content and become a better forum partcipant. Thank you.
