    Apparently you have been hitting the speed bumps at the mall waay to fast!

    Well, that too.
    Here in The Northern Territory we have some very long, very rough corrugated unsealed roads.
    To smooth out the ride on the corrugations (I think you guys call it washboard?) have to maintain speed above 80 kph, which means hitting the rough patches, washouts etc, a lot faster than desirable. My shock absorbers are probably stuffed too but they will have to wait. Only done 66,000 km in 10 years but don't know how long the bump stops have been like that. Noticed them when I wound up the T bars.

My OEM ones were rotted, which can be seen in the attached picture, and I should add that in the picture the oem bumpstop appears slightly taller because i manipulated it to expose where it had rotted thru, in actuality OEM is 1/2in shorter.



    I have also ordered a pair from Amazon. Will take 4 weeks to get here and will give feedback when fitted.

    Now this is a guy that gets his moneys worth out of a part. With an extra couple of inches of nosedive when braking, that has got to be real fun to drive.

    Yeah, you learn to slow down before you get to the stop light. Hard cornering is where the fun really starts.

    So I pick up a set of those 15153958 bump stops mentioned earlier.

    They popped right in and are in fact 1/2" taller then stock.

    One thing I noticed right away is that the rubber is softer (I believe the term is durometer) yet it has less of a "spring" design then our OEM units

    I took it for a drive around the block and noticed that the truck seemed to feel more stable in the turns and it feels like there is less nose dive when braking.

    I will update this once I get more miles done but so far I think this might be a worth while option for some.

    Ps- I have a Rancho lift just for future reference

    Ok I just found a set of 1/2" extended stops I didn't use and measured them,

    The base is 2.44" in diameter and the height is 2.75", the middle part is 2" diameter

    Finally received the new bump stops and fitted them along with a new set of Old Man Emu shocks. Thanks to the suggestion of svxr8dr I got GM Part#15153958 and they pushed straight in with a bit of wriggling. The nose still dives, so I am thinking they are softer than the OEM stops or the Trailduty ones. They'll have to do for nowName:  New Front Bump Stop.jpg

    How leveled are you? Looking at your control arms there is still a gap between the arm and the bump stop and that causes part of the nose dive. Add that the GM stop is soft rubber.

    It has been levelled. Measures 590mm from fender, fitted with factory flares, to wheel centre. May still try to locate some Trailduty stops.
