I think the ones I was using were not meant for this application. They're actually listed as shock eye bushings, and probably not engineered for the heavy loads from the top and bottom. The other part number I mentioned above should work much better since it is actually a bump stop.

You got it. When you compare the difference between the stock bump and the ES bump (in your hand) you'll see.
Get the BLACK Energy Suspension bump stops. The black stops are self lubricating, the reds are not. I got all 4 for $18 shipped.

Are those totally wrong part to consider? to me it looked very similar to our G2OEM bump stops.
So our choice is only black 9.6110???
I don't think either of those two are meant to work with a strut. They both say "Designed to accept 3/8" dia. socket head bolt" so that seems like they attach to something, not go over the strut shaft. I would stick with 9.6110 just to be safe if you're lowered. If you're at OEM height, just get some OEM replacements.
