I've tried to tap that post (two pictures with the hole) and it isn't enough metal to grab onto. I'm thinking I cut that bump stop down some and just do as I planned. Fill the entire hole with some high strength adhesive, shove the bolt through the bump stop, and into that hole and strap it down so it sets. Once it sets for 24/48 hours its not going anywhere. It's sorta ghetto rigged, but the extended bumpstops were cheaper than the oem ones by A LOT so I went with those knowing I had to attach them somehow. Overall, I think it'll work. I'm going to go without the isolators for now, and see how she rides. Worse case, I pull the spring again and attach them. Not a huge project lol.

On the rear, Is it possible to use the spring isolator on the bottom of the budget boost? BB-isolator-spring?
