I'm new at this so I hope what I'm doing is correct! I'm replacing the front bump pads account of deterioration. I'm replacing them with new silicone bump pads. The new pads should be here any day. Thanks for any help you have to offer!!

This is easy to do, just pry out the remains of the old ones with a screw driver and push the new ones into the cup. The cup has some indentations that help hold the bump stop into place so it make sure the new one has been pushed past those.

Just grab onto the old ones and give a good few wiggles back and forth, it should pop right out. If not, some channel locks will help. Grease the new jounce bumpers and pop them in. Really easy to accomplish
