    Default Rubicon Express Bumpstop Installation

    Hello everyone,

    Just a quick stupid question. I have a set of the Rubicon Express front lower bumpstops (part #: RE1380 http://www.rubiconexpress.com/Produc...=39EB796732415 ).

    I cannot figure out how this part is supposed to be installed. The RE website says it goes inside of the spring on the bottom, but there's no place to screw it into on the bottom spring perch. ??? I know I'm missing something here.

    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Regards,
    Joel

    Do you remember the 1980's Super Glue commercials? With the guy and the hard hat.......here is your chance to test that product!

    The bravest of all Spartans was Dienekes. It is said that on the eve of battle, he was told by a native of Trachis that “the Persian archers were so numerous that, when they fire their volleys, the mass of arrows will block out the sun.”

    Dienekes, however, quite undaunted by this prospect, remarked with a laugh, “Good. Then we’ll fight in the shade!”

    Cool. Thanks for the replies guys. Probably not going to superglue it though. Would be entertaining though.

    Ok so what happens if he gets superglue on both sides of the bumpstop and bottoms out? Now that would be entertaining.
