Default Daystar Stinger Bump Stops

Some info


What you get.






One is assembled.

This is the order the parts go in.




This is good info






It tells that the black ones are hard and the blue ones are medium.


I will get them installed on my rig after I get the front Ring and pinion back together.

i thought about getting those. Let us know how they work out for you. I dont know how well they'll handle stopping my rockwells in whoops at the dunes.

Sounds like they have a REALLY short life.... Why not pony up for air bumps? Same work, just a couple hundred more and way less maintenance...

How much do they cost?

I was looking into using them on my Jeep but couldn't justify the almost 200 dollars for them at the time. Definitely let us know how they work out though. I need to do something with my Jeep as the factory rubber stops are not working out very well..

Not sidetrack this too much, but how are your timbrens holding up Erin?

the ends fall apart. craig and dale from extreme bought these and they both were junk after the first run at drummond.they did warranty them.they both sold them and bought real radflow bumps.
my timbrens are still in good shape and do there job..(3 years)no rips and they still take the hits.
i would recommend those way before these fake bumps.1/4 the price also.

no rubber bushings are ever going to be close to a real air bump. for us cheap guys buy a timbren or the stock chevy bumps for some decent cushion.if your spending 200 why not spend 2 more and get the good stuff?

So...
2 Daystar bump stops = $210
2 bump cans from polyperformance = $60 + $10 for shipping = $70
Total cost = $280

Or...
2 FOA bumpstops = $300 including cans
Shipping = $15

For $35 extra, id run the FOA's. From my own personal dealings Ive bought 4 air bumps and 2 cans for under $550, 2 Bilstein and 2 General Motors brand (yes General Motors makes 4" travel air bumps)

Skooter - Can you provide an application (year/model) or part number for the GM bumps?

Cool thanks. We're putting timbrens on our trec jeep since we can't use air bumps in our class. Hearing that you haven't destroyed yours yet in 3 years makes me think they should be fine for the racer.

GM calls them rear jounce shocks and they come "standard" on special defence ordered GM 2500 series trucks. The same trucks that armys, border guards and other defence units buy. I bought that exact set for $200 but good luck trying to find them, they are extremly hard to come by.

Unless those jounce shocks have an 8 digit numerical part number, GM doesn't make them. They look like the edelbrock ones or whatever the cheaper version was being talked about on pirate a year or two ago.

How come nobody has caught onto the 99+ half ton pickup rear bump stops? They really are the best for the money. ~$15/ea.

See Erin's post, #11. I think that's what he's talking about.

Timbrens are not the factory GM stuff, they are a modified style of it and others but they are a bit more.
