Daystar EVS Shock Bump Stop Review

Installed a set of these {RED} soft Shock bump stops.

I have 5 inches of up travel shocks on 14 inch Bilstein 5150s running on an 2006 Jeep TJ with Rubicon Express Long Arm and 35 inch Toyo Tires.

First tests reveal a superb soft takeoff and landing on medium and hard bumps and do not intrude in everyday driving.

Will post later on durability to everyday and offroad use.

Daystar bump stops work great! Nonetheless they are breaking appart......They are good for 1 year........I plan to upgrade to hydraulic Bumpstops soon.

Did you install these? If so, how do you link them?

Seems like this would add stress to the mounting bolts for the shocks. Have you had any broken bar pins?

I TRIED to install them. I spent hours and gave up. Heat, lube, brute force, even with the install tool I couldn't get them to slide over my shocks. I'm not one to give up easy, but I just decided that it wasn't worth it to continue. Maybe I got an extra hard set, or maybe the shocks I used were wider at the top than usual, but I was very disappointed in these. I wouldn't recommend them, though I can't comment on how they work once they are installed.
