What are Bump Stops? - Buyer's Guide

Timbren DR1500DQ Rear Suspension Enhancement System

Everybody seems to be familiar with shocks and struts, lowering springs and leveling kits. But, bump stops also play a vital role when it comes to your suspension system. That’s why we’re always surprised when we hear people ask “what are bump stops?” If you’ve ever wondered this same question, you’re in luck. We have all the information you need to know about what bump stops do and how to choose the best ones for your suspension system.

Bump Stops Explained

Bump stops are designed to improve your ride while protecting your vehicle’s suspension. Lowering kits are all fun and games until somebody or something gets hurt. And, if you’ve ever bottomed out, you know the damage that can do to your ride as well as to your back. But, you can soften the blow with a high-quality pair of rubber or polyurethane bump stops.

In order to get the best protection possible, you want to choose from the brand names you can trust. Brands like Belltech have set the bar when it comes to suspension protection and ride quality. The Belltech Bump Stop Kit, for example, comes in a range of sizes to match your lowered ride’s new amount of suspension travel. Plus, it’s made from high-quality polyurethane for strength that lasts. And, it features integrated threaded studs for an easy bolt-on installation.

The Best Suspension Bumpers

Another popular bump stop kit is the Daystar Stinger Bump Stops. These bumps stops feature a tunable design that’s adaptable to any off-road situation. Plus, they’re much stronger than conventional bump stops. Choose from two different types of easily-swappable EVS foam inserts—one that provides a softer, more progressive stop and one that is harder for firmer suspension protection. And, by mixing and matching these foam densities, you tweak and tune your Daystar suspension to match the needs of your particular terrain.

To help you choose which bump stops are the best, check out the suspension reviews on our website. You’ll find information on all the top brands and styles. So, you can easily compare the Belltech bump stops to the Supersway-Stops. Plus, you can see which stops are recommended for your ride’s new height.
