Re: Working Man's Burbon

The previous owner removed all the bump stops from the suspension. The rear was the easier of the pair, so I started there. I ordered the energy suspension black units 9-9109G for the rear. The factory bump stop is a pull through mount and the new ones are a bolt on style. I took a 3" x3" concrete bearing plate (from Depot) and cut 3/8" off of one edge and set it in the factory mount and bolted it down. Then lowered the burb and compared the measurements I made before I bolted the stops in. The drivers side was 1/2" higher and the other side was 1/4" higher. Not enough to to see but it will make me feel better.
