Bump stop for PRG KIt

So I have been told that the bump stop that comes with the PRG kit is an Energy suspension generic bump stop. Generic, meaning not specific for the Frontier. Here are my questions.

How many people are useing them and how many people jsut left the stock bumps? Is there anything bad about allowing the suspension to travel to the stock bump stop.

The reason I ask is because the shape of the ES bump is all wronge. The angle at which it will contact the stop pad is bad. This is evadent by a few people desytroing their ES bumps.

Has anymore modified their stock bumps to work with the PRG lift. A flat spacer can lift the bump stop 3/4 of an inch, and work much better than the ES stop.

Thought??

Both of the bumps that came from PRG broke in half after a Barstow trip. But you need a longer bump than stock to keep the strut/coilover from over compressing due to the spacer, or coilover mount. I got the ES bumps (same size), they have a hole in the middle of them and can flex without ripping apart, and they are a little softer.

SHOW TRUCKS SUCK !!!!!

What if you shave off the top layer of the ES bump stop? Allows for more bumpin area to offset the angle.

Not really, just the top 1 cm layer.

I still think that adding a spacer to the stock bump is the way to go. THough I have yet to do it.

This may be of interest. I also have concerns w/ the contact angle.

If you want good bump stops you will have to ditch the entire stock set up and get some hydraulic stops. Fox, sway way, radflow and giant make some killer ones. they cost a lot and some fab is need. But yo0u will not be disappointed.

Few people understand the psychology of dealing with a highway traffic cop. Your normal speeder will panic and immediately pull over to the side. This is wrong. It arouses contempt in the cop-heart. Make the bastard chase you. He will follow!
