Shock Bumps?

anyone use these? http://www.polyperformance.com/shop/...p-p-17664.html.

the rear shocks i plan on buying may be a little too long, i was thinking i could use these to help prevent bottoming out the shock.

Not sure about those in particular, but some folks on here have Timbrens, and Wheelers superbumps.

EDIT: Wait, do these actually go on the shock? Never have seen those.

Do they limit up-travel at all, or do they squish down so much that it's negligible?

not sure if they really limit travel, but they increase resistence as the shock begins to bottom.

taken from their site:

"As the Jounce Bumper compresses, it increases its resistance, therefore providing a progressive rate as the shock compresses. This prevents the harsh bottoming often felt with many suspension designs."

Crazy, I was just looking at these on poly performance and I do a search on here to see if anyone was using them and someone already beat me to it so if anyone has info on how these run, it would greatly be appreciated.

Bump stops essentially raise the spring rate of the suspension where they are installed once it reaches a certain point in its compression. Without knowing the height of the new bumpstop, you have no idea of knowing how much it will limit suspension travel. A bumpstop that's too large would keep you at a higher spring rate almost all the time which may be pretty uncomfortable. Foam bumpstops also have a lifespan, and if you need that much additional cushioning, you're probably better off with longer and/or stiffer springs.

"Harder" and "softer" are pretty vague terms as well, and they don't list the cases where you would use one over the other. Maybe the seller can offer up more information?

I've used them before. I had them up front on my icon coilovers. They worked really well but got destroyed after three desert trips. They can take mild abuse but nothing crazy.

I've heard on the rear shocks if you take a big enough hit they will just slide off the same way they were installed. I'd say go for it but not if your concerned about the shock being too long. That will just be a bandaid to a more serious problem.
