Quick Bumpstops

Need a quick bumpstop? Rather than climbing under your truck and installing a conventional bumpstop, why not do what this guy did?

He grabbed an old shock bushing he had laying around, cut a slit in it, and slipped it over the chrome shaft of his shock. He used a zip tie to make sure it stayed on there.

Now when the shock bottoms out, it hits that rubber donut. It doesn't eliminate the need for a bumpstop, it's just a temporary solution. He also notes that you should make sure the shock mount is strong enough to be a bump stop as well, otherwise you could run into other issues.

this is a good idea in addition to bumpstops. i think it keeps the shocks to last longer
