Factory Bump Stops


What's everyone doing with them when lowered? Replacing them? Cutting them? Leaving them as is. Lets hear about this ..

There are three notches on the factory bump stops and I cut one of them off. I just did it today so I don't have any results on it.

Eibach sells a shorter one. I'd like to know the height compared to the factory bump stop. Anyone know?

I'm talking about the bump stop on the rear axle. Pull your rear wheels off and look at the axle. It's pretty easy to see.

I never cut mine down. Didn't think they needed anything done to them. I'm starting to get a little creaking that I'm guessing is sway bar related. Maybe because my stops are too tall?

I couldn't tell you. I don't have the Eibachs. I ended up cutting my factory bump stops at the first notch. It has worked great for me and it was free !!

If you have lowering springs, check if you're hitting the bump stops on the frame.
