Bump Stops

I have a S/R with 235 Mud tires. I never installed the extended bump stops and was wondering if I should. Is there any reason to or not to install them? The tires do not stick out of the wheel wells. Thanks. Jim

Re: Bump Stops

i think the bump stops are there to stop you from stuffing a tire and blowing out an axle and to stop you from bending your springs up so much.but there are alot of people who don't extend them on this page ,who run many different suspentions so ...you decide.
me ... i think if they came with a kit ,they are there for a reason .but thats my take .

Re: Bump Stops

Zukikid is right! I've seen lots of jeep springs get tweeked bad because they don't have bump-stops! Bumpstops also keep your u-joints and axles happy. On my Zuk, I don't have them. I should, but don't. With my project that I'm working on, they will have them. I also know lots of guys that don't run them. Its up to you.?

Re: Bump Stops

I'd install them. There is the "equal & opposite reaction" thing that I could explain to you at the fab fest. Then there is the issue of bottoming out the longer shocks.

Oh yeah, I got to get you those numbers.

Re: Bump Stops

Here are some pics of my bump stops I made up from box tube and a set of Ford Aerostar bump stops from Pick and Pull. The rear stops where cut down a little after a flex test. I am sure they saved me from totally wrapin' my rear YJ's on the 'Con. If you don't have 'em, Get 'em, unless you like buying springs after a hardcore trail ride.
