WJ front bump stop ideas????

My front bump stop bolts broke off when I was in the process of putting on my lift. I just left it there and put on rest of my lift. Now I need some bump stops so my 35s dont get into my fenders. I need about a 6" or 7" bump stop. How and where should I do it??? Thanks for any ideas.

Can a bump stop be put inside the coil like the rear?

Bump stop within the coil would be better, but the problem is they're so long in the front.

I'd try one of the ez-out kits where you drill out the hole then use a reverse bit to get the bolt out. Combine that with heat and you should be able to get em, theres a good bit of space there to work.

The other option is to just weld the bump stops on if you have a buddy...

I dont think an ez-out will work. the bolts would start comming out, then seized up, then broke. Im not a big fan of welding them because I will be redoing them when go with a little more lift. something like a IRO coil retainer from the top, then a little spacer with something soft comming up from the bottom

drill out the whole nut and weld some new ones in.

another issue is with 6" and short arms that are adjusted out a little, I dont think that the stock location would be far enough forward with it flexed.

OK, i just went out and looked it over and I got an idea. Ill take some 1/4" steel, drill and tap it, (so then Ill be able to move it where ever I need it) then weld it to the frame.

I extended my front bumpstops with a piece of boxed steel. I think it was 4x2x.25. You could weld the steel to the uniframe and then just drill 2 holes and bolt the oem bumpstop to it.
