bump stop question

I have a small issue with bumpstops on my front 4" SAS banging on each other (on small bumps and small speed bumps for an idea) and just wondering what size or how tall everyones bumpstops are and if you are using both top and bottom bumpstops

bumpstops

I am just using the standard trail-gear bumps stops, the rubber mounted to the u-bolt spring plate and the bumpstop extension above the frame.

now looking at the installed pic it seems to me that mine might be a little short..


Here are some junkyard bumpstop alternatives:
Found this and thought that it was well worth passing on:

Been toying with the idea of air bumps for along time now, but not sure if I am going to tube the front of my truck out yet when putting in the new LQ4, stay tuned, so putting all the work into mounting cans correctly is a wast of time rite now

A lot of guys in my club run Bravada bumps and swear by them.

So I decided that I would head to the junk yard and find some Bravada bumps. They are super easy to pull, only bolt holding them on, and the "bump can" and bump and be easily separated to get to the bolt easier. the bump just pops into the can, also if you tear one, you just pop in new rubber. So while cruzing the JY I came across a Nissan Pathfinder and it had these perfect bumps, SUPER SOFT, I mean really soft. because of the huge holes in the pattern. So wanting to try something different I pulled them and put them on the truck hour before we left.

I was going to cut the factory mount and make my own to fit the curve of the frame, but the factory lean on the mount worked great for where my axle is( about 8-9" forward of stock).

They work awesome, really progressive, and can take a hard hit, have 5 1/2" of up travel, and these worked perfect for HARD bottom outs and jumps. I think they are better then Bravada bumps performance wise. but if i tear one, it will be PITA to fix rather then "just pop a new rubber on":grinpimp:

either way you go they are both great option for a cheap factory bump that's better then any of the poly after market ones I have used or seen used.
