JBA rear bumpstops

Hey guys, quick question. What is the eat way to install bumpstops to the rear? Is there a special type of screw I should use or something because where you drill into is really tough. I was thinking a concrete anchor or something. Anyone have any ideas please shoot them my way I'll try anything. Thanks

Just drill down through the center of the spring pad and bolt them down, that way if you ever need to remove your spring its easy to remove
regular bolt works just fine

I just used 1/4" bolts with a washer under the head and a nut and lockwasher on the bottom. I think I used 2-1/2" long for going through 2 hockey pucks. I drilled a bigger hole part way into the top puck so the heads didn't stick out, otherwise they may chew up the upper bumpstop.

If doing like above make sure you can get a wrench or socket on the bolt head so you can remove if needed. Had one that I had to cut the bolt and hockey puck due to not be able to access the bolt head .

The last time I tried I couldn't get the screw to catch. It was late so I just gave up for another day. I still have to put the rear sway bar back on anyway. I'll try tapping it in so I can use a normal bolt.

Tapping?
Just drill and run a bolt through with a nut on the bottom

Wait drill all the way through the stock lower bump stop? I just went outside and looked at it. Never realized there was all the space in between the axle shaft and the spring mount. I think I finally understand.
