Redneck bumpstops

Decided to rebuild my knuckles and snapped a pic of my hokey bumpstops. The little poly things on the shock shaft slow down the movement so that the hard rubber stops dont hit so hard. It works WAY better than just the rubber ones alone. [IMG][/IMG]

And then? How about a little tech to go along with your one picture. Who did you buy them from? If you got them in a junkyard what vehicle did they come off of? Shock bumps aren't anything new to offroaders.

Those appear to be Daystar EVS bump stops. There are a joke and they do diddly squat. Search.

I have something like that on the shocks that I got from Poly Performance, they came on a shock called BBCS (Big Black Cock Shocks) and they seem to help a lot.

Those are real bumpstops from basf Germany. They aren't hollow like the Eva bumps (done so they can be pushed over the eyelet)

Yup Daystar EVS bumpstops they are. I had to use two on each shock seperated by a washer that I put a split in to fit over the shock shaft. They do make a difference but nothing close to an air bump. Hey Beat Duhh I did call them redneck. Search for what? I didnt ask any questions.

if you do that most likely means your shock mount was not strong and needs to be strengthened

look again, the shock is "upside down".. the shock body (and the braided line attached to it) droop with the axle...

The shocks are mounted correctly in their proper, intended orientation.

This is the line he is talking about. Vibration work hardens the metal and it can break.

Should do something like the bottom picture.

You only get rear brakes for a day or so until it gets replaced

I agree its not perfect, but that line will be fine for a very long time, there is enough braded line there that the hard line wont have to flex...

i have come to the conclusion that anything the the words day-star and bumpstop should be avoided, this thread seems to be an example of what not to do...........

Mine lasted about 1 year like that before they broke off driving down a rural county road. The rear brakes locked up and the truck did a 360. I'm happy no one was around, and that I didn't hit a center divide. It could have been very, very bad.

Don't be an idiot, and get that fixed ASAP.

Your brakes locked up as a result of a broken brake line

That will be the only half of the master cylinder that may work. one part does both fronts, the other port does both rears. At least on this style master. Some will do one front and opposing rear.
