Do you have to get new bump stops if you add a lift to a YJ?

Thanks,
Rusty

bump what? They must fall into the same category as Trac Bars and swaybars. Once your built they are pretty close to useless.

That's far from accurate.

Bumpstops are intended to prevent overcompression of the suspension (specifically the shocks and coil springs, if so equipped) and prevent tire rubbing due to too much vertical travel.

They are also important on leaf spring equipped vehicals too. If you lift your leaf sprung vehical and you don't want your new springs wearing out prematurely you will need to get longer bumpstops so your springs don't over center when stuffing a tire. Sometimes a leaf on a flexy vehical will over center and get stuck in that position and has to manually righted.
