bump stops?

has anyone used the energy suspension universal bump stops with a 2 inch drop in the front?

I have the zq8 bump stops currently on, but i think its time replace them.

I'd stick with the zq8 bumps. I went thru alot of different Polyurethane stops, they always failed early and ugly. The zq8's seem indestructible compared to Polyurethane. Just get some new zq8's.

I used their Poly Bump Stops on the Top of the Upper arms when rebuilding the FE but kept the ZQ8's on the Lower arms. Can't say how those Lower Poly's would work but they don't have much give to them at all.

The poly bumpstops on my wagon were destroyed! Hotchkis little round conehead looking ones. Very brittle and half there. Not sure on age/mileage but I wouldn't use that style.

I used the energy suspension poly ones up top, and ZQ8 style on bottom.
