Bumpstops

Anyone use the new Daystar Stinger Bump Stops at all? I was looking around online and came across them. They look pretty good, progressive stops int he canister and it can be adjusted as you need it. You just weld the mounted bracket on your spring perch and its done it looks like. Yalls thoughts?...

Let's see. Those are $210 and require significant fabrication and welding.

These cost $4 and don't require any welding.


Which brings us to Boogie's correct assessment:

I did the hockey puck bumpstops. my actual cost was $12 for 12 pucks (3" decrease in uptravel at each corner) plus a tube of RTV $9.99 and about an afternoon.

i am super happy with it.

When you say hockey puck, do actually mean a hockey puck like in the sport? How are those set up?

yes, hockey puck as in the sport. you glue them down to the spring pad in the front (can only use them in front) using an epoxy. they're 1" thick...and you can stack them up if necessary.

Or you can use JKS bumpstops. They're great if you feel that down the road you might change coil/damper configurations.
