the front bumpstop; and on this note: It Isnt There,,, it must have fallen out... HOW? they wont fit through the spring.

so how is one of mine missing? shouldnt there be a beat-up bump stop at the bottom of the coil?

and when I put in a new one, how to properly secure it,

and so the hockypuck is for use with a lift, in addition to the actual bump stop... to adjust for the lift.

( and technically; that is not holy fak, that would be UNholy fak)

i use those. much better than hockey pucks, but not as cheap.

jounce bumpers are supposed to provide a soft stop for up travel. hitting hockey pucks against metal will give you a very jarring ride.

you want your bump stops to either limit your up travel to the point right before your shocks bottom out or before your tire eats a fender. whatever comes first. but definitely need them if you want your shocks to last. you can blow them out on the highway with no bumpstops.

Yes, you absolutely still need a jounce with the hockey pucks
