BUMP STOPS

Bump stops are a vital part of the suspension, they stop the shockers from over compressing.

If they are damaged or missing, the shocker will compress further than it's rated travel point, which will cause damage to the internal valves, oil leaking from top seal, bending of the main shaft or in some cases complete failure of the shocker. bumpstop

It is advised when replacing shockers, to also replace the bump stops as this will increase the life of the new shockers.

Running a vehicle without bump stops will greatly reduce the life of a shocker.
