So im going to be installing my lift next week and was thing about extending my bump stops, but im not trying to dish out $100 bux for peices of rubber. I tried looking on here for DIY bump stops but didnt come across anything other than sum ppl saying you can use hockey pucks. How do i do this, and if any of you know of a thread that will help me out please post.
its not rubber they are metal but I dont blame you they can be expensive you could cut hockey pucks and cut them out around the base of the part that bolts up on the frame match the bolt pattern and drill some holes and get some longer bolts. the back are in the coil springs I guess you could cut circle out and put them on the old ones. I hope you can understand this Im just thinking about them in my head lol. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask
IRO 6.5" lift, IRO Front long arms, rear iro adj upper a arm and adj rear lower, custom 4x4 fab front bumper, rough country winch, 15" crager soft 8's, procomp 35-12.50 tire, fenders trimmed KOR light bar, malone roof rack
i have 2by4 square tube for my bump stop extensions and so far they are working good so far. as far as the rear you can get some pieces of round tubing cut it to the length you wish and weld a washer on top and bolt it to the coil bucket. i can take some picks tomorrow (its to dark now to be able to see it)
yeah def post up a pic to help us out, i dont know how i let this one slip by me but i did. pieced out my lift, installing it in.... less than 12 hours. teraflex 4" coils with bilstein 5125's. Now im pretty sure IRO 3" kits dont include bumpstops and rustys 2.5" kit doesnt include them. now i know 2.5" and 3" is still less than the 4 or 4.5" im gonna get with mine. but how important are these bumpstops if i have NO wheeling planned in the next 5 months with this thing?
just some good old Maine roads with under funded roadwork "fixes" and frost heaves from the last 13 years on unimproved roadways? anyone else live in the sticks of maine know what im talking bout?
my wifes civic gets eaten whole by some of these critters (2" drop on an already low 3" ground clearence doesnt leave much room under there)
How hard is it to install these damn things after the lift? probly not worth the time to do it twice huh?
Thanks again JF
thanks alot man you just saved me a buttload of money, gonna go get the supplies this weekend and work on it. Will post my end result when done. Also do you remember the diameter of the tubing for the rear im thinking about 2" you think thats along the right lines?
I did something similar for the front, I put two pieces of 1.5" sq tubing together and made them the length of the extension i needed, then added longer bolts. I put mine on end versus on the side. You really do not need rear ones if you never disconnect the rear.
