Hockey puck for a bump stop?

Hockey pucks are 1" high. If I was to place two of them, one on top of the other (kinda like 2 coins), and bolt them down to a metal sheet, and the all together on the frame rail, would they do a good job as bump stops? Or are they too hard? They should be almost exact height of the stock bump stop, when put together that way.
Also, since the REAR ones are attached to the part of the frame rail that is not horizontal, but going upwards, would there be problems if I was to attach them without leveling? I mean, make them exactly like front ones & attach them. Then the surface where the axleshaft hits would not be horizontal, but parralel to the rail. When the shaft hits it, would that push the shaft backwards & create problems, or it simply doesn't matter?

Re: Hockey puck for a bump stop?

IMHO - Hockey puck is not best for bumpstop (like you said - hard). ...still better than none [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
Regarding your question about the rear - I think hockey pucks will tend to deflect more than absorb. However, it would need to be a very hard hit to deflect enough to cause problem.
Maybe even cut in half and fastened to frame on end would allow better absorbtion and help with the rear deflection issue. Plus only 2 pucks instead of 8 will be required [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Not sure availibility to you due to location but many auto stores carry OE style bumpstops.

N.A.P.A. -

Maybe cost is too high also but -

Quadratec - sells OE and aftermarket bumpstops.

4 Wheel Parts Wholesalers -
4 Wheel Drive Hardware -
sell bumpstops as well.
