    Replaced with these... had to do a little cutting but nothing too much. Took a total of about 15 minutes for everything.

    I don't know, I don't think I will be cutting anything off to make something aftermarket fit. Just not my cup of tea

    Could you tell me what this does? I see it's located behind the tire and I'm sure mine is out as well .... My car is at the body shop but I will defiantly take a look when I get it back. Thanks in advance ...

    You can just trim down the side of the Bumpstop, instead of cutting the lip off.
    And FYI, the price for those bumpstops is for 1 pair.

    And also you'll gain a little suspension travel since these B.S. are around 7/16" shorter than stock.

    No, they usually rot out.

    Low mile car probably or it doesn't face the elements as much.

    Try pushing side to side on it and not up and down.

    I have almost 161k.. They were factory. I can really tell a HUGE difference.. I have done a lot of modding on my car.. its mine.. and it will go to the GRAVE with me.

    These bumpstops are cheap and work 10 times better IMO for the DD
