Energy Suspension bumpstop question.

Hello

I found these bumpstops in energysuspension.com

Can anyone advise me if these (9.9135, 9.9143) can be good OEM bumpstop alternatives?
Also, can these bumpstops be used with aftermarket suspension such as Koni Suspension Kit or KYB etc ?

I found that many are using 9.8107 for their lowering suspensions but I want to have a little more damping & height......

or any other options???

Thank you in advance.

I think hotlavaflow is using 9.6110 on his, and I will probably switch to those next time I mess with my suspension. I think I've already blown another 9.8107 on the drivers front...

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.
BTW
Get the BLACK Energy Suspension bump stops. The black stops are self lubricating, the reds are not. I got all 4 for $18 shipped.

How about 9.9135 or 9.9143 that I asked about?

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.

Thanks you!

By the way, do you think I can use this 9.6110 bumpstop with "Koni+OEM spring" set up?

They fit on my Koni's with no problem. Spring or coilover doesn't matter.
