Mounting Hockey Pucks ?

I just got my pucks. Now, what is the best and easiest way to mount them ?
I really do not want to drill through my spring plate on my 99 Wrangler. PITA
I am going to install my RC Lift Kit this weekend so my suspension will be apart as I want to do it then.


Thanks.

I didn't have to do it on the front, but on the rear I bought a waterproof epoxy. Just scuff the pucks and clean the spring pad really well.

They have been on for 2 years with 3-4 pretty rough wheelin trips. Haven't fallen off yet.

Same here. I epoxied mine to the spring perch. Has been on there for about 1.5 years w/ lots of wheeling. No signs of coming loose yet.

I have seen hockey pucks used for a lot of things on a Jeep, but I am not following this one. Are you using them as bumpstops?

Yup. A hockey puck glued to the spring pad makes a great 1" extension for your bump stops. It's a cheap and effective solution.

Bump Stop Extensions.
I thought it was wierd also. After doing research on here and the internet from different people. The reviews and satisfaction from people who have used them when adding a lift kit convinced me to go ahead and use them as extensions.

I welded a nut to the spring plate (I own my own welder).



Then I drilled a hole through the center of the puck and bolted them down. This is a little more permanent than glueing them on.

Epoxied pucks to the spring perch for front bump stops. As was mentioned earlier, scruff up the perch and the puck. Have had mine on for 2 years.
