Description

Two Black Extended Bump Stops Front or Rear.

Part Number:- GL1057B-2, Extended Bump Stops, Black, Pair

Weight:– 2Kg

Fits:- Defender 90/110/130, Disco 1 & RRC.

This is a pair of  Front or Rear +1 inch extended polyurethane bump stops, complete with bolts.

The overall height is 83mm.

These Bump Stops are universal fitment, the mounting plate is a heavy duty 5mm plate with 6 mounting holes to fit either the front or rear.

These include correct length Bolts, Nuts & Washers that are required for fitment.

Extended bump stops are required when you fit a suspension lift, the bump stops are there to stop your coil spring from becoming fully coil bound and cracking the coil spring mount off the chassis, this can happen if you land hard or hit a bump off road. When taller springs are fitted to get a suspension lift, you will find you may have 1 extra coil to the spring and the bar is thicker, this means the standard bump stops will be too short and you definitely need extended bump stops.

Bump stops do not restrict articulation, the axle pivots on the coil spring and the bump stop then comes away from the axle, you would have to have very long bump stops to restrict articulation and then you will lose upward movement on rough terrain as you may only have 2 to 3 inches between the axle and bump stop. See the last 2 pictures of my Defender rear axle fully up in the arch, the coil spring is almost coil bound and the bump stop doesn’t touch the axle.
