Hey John, I'm servicing my JVABs.
The ones I bent sliding sideways into the berm that flipped my car I was able to bend back with my press.
But looking at my bumpstops they seem like after the car settles onto the springs some there wouldn't be much travel before I hit the stop. Could I trim or should I leave it be?



Brap Brap.

No that's the shorter "rubber-oid" style, they're groovy as is..
You got the inserts so they plunge nice?
AND the rod goes in and out smooov-ly?

Yeah, even when they were bent (~3mm ) the rods were smooth, inserts them selves jammed immediately. Now they plunge. I'm VERY happy. Thanks for making the strut housings bullet proof.
