Bump stop removal?

I'm having problems busting shocks on my bump stops. Would removing the bump stops cause any problems? I really hate buying new shocks!

Re: Bump stop removal?

If you remove your stops,bad things will happen to your springs (to much negative arch) You can build some new lower mounts to push the bottom of the shock out.Hope this helps....

I just trimmed all the excess metal from around the bump stop it seems to have worked great.

Re: Bump stop removal?

Yea keep the bumpstops or you will be reinstaling them or something new down the line. I just got the size of mine squared away, this so the front tires don't get cut on the fender well under full stuff. the rear I have no problems with. I just redid the bottom shock mounts so they are further back.
