This is what was left of my old bumpstop!

For a while now my front suspension has been bottoming out on certain multiple bumps. A cursory glance at the front end revealed that the left lower bumpstop was completely missing! Instead of replacing with the factory rubber, I decided to use a low-profile unit, in order to give my front-end a little more room to flex.

I elected to use a bumpstop from Energy Suspension, part # 9.9102G

Editor's Note: For actual gains in frontend articulation, you must remove all droop limiting factors. These include adding longer shocks, longer brake lines, and disconnecting your swaybars. These modifications will affect your vehicle's onroad stability, so use common sense.
