Are they hard to pull? Wouldn't I need to pull the spring to get them out in the junkyard?

not if your smarter than the spring.

take some channel locks and a socket set. pull the front shocks off, leave the spring and track bar. grab the bumpstops with channel locks, wiggle them out of the cup, let them drop into the spring. remove the cup with socket set, pull that out. then squeeze the bumpstop through the spring. might need to hit it a few times with the channel lock. i assure you it fits...just takes some grunting. i pulled 8+ this way in less than 40 minutes, and that includes walking across a huge junkyard.

So they are held in with pressure, no bolts?

you'll see when you try to pull them out. just grab with channel locks and twist and pull down. armor all or vinyl conditioner will make them easier to slide in.

I got the energy suspension polyurethane replacement ones, they went in piece of cake. $20 a pair. I am happy and my rough country lift is done! It's awesome.
