Cheap Prices For Sale USA Magnet USA America Falls Park on the Reedy Greenville 3D Fri Buy Discounts Online USA Magnet USA America Falls Park on the Reedy Greenville 3D Fri half My Original units had completely deteriorated.First, I turned the front wheels to allow for access to the suspension without removing the tire/wheel combo. Access is from the rear - so turn the steering wheel hard right for left (driver's side in USA), and hard left for right side of the truck (passenger side in USA)Then with the rear wheels chocked, and proper safety equipment (glasses, etc), I used a compressed air blow gun to clean out the area around the nut (garden hose with water would also work). In my case, everything was a bit rusty, so I applied a small squirt of penetrating oil on the top of the nut around the threads and let it soak in for 10 min (I used Liquid Wrench)Then to remove the nut, I used a 3/8 Drive Ratchet, 10" "wobble" extension (craftsman Item # CMMT44287) and a regular depth 15mm Socket. This allowed easy access to the nut from above with the front wheel turned so that access was from "behind" the wheel. Slight off angle, so wobble on extension was needed - Flex socket would also work. Nut is not provided with the new item - so save the nut for re-use!The old unit just fell out, as mine was deteriorated.last to fit the new item in, had to jack up the vehicle like I would if I were changing the front tire, this allows the suspension to drop and allows enough room to get the new bumper in place. Only needed to jack up the vehicle enough to allow clearance - tire barley off the ground was more than enough.Install:Hold the new item in place - stud through the hole for the nut and there is a small alignment pin that goes though a small hole to properly align the item. Then install the nut that was taken off during removal of the old item. I used a piece of paper to wedge the nut in the socket and hold it in place.Torque the nut to to spec and make sure the alignment pin stays in the small hole, I don't know the exact torque - but I used the general spec of about 30 ft/lbs (the real spec is likely somewhere from 22 to 37 ft/lbs)AWESOME OEM bump stops and a direct fit for my 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500 Crew Cab. My ride suffered for a very long time until I finally realized my factory bump stops were shot to hell and deteriorated. I literally avoided all potholes, bumps, and any imperfection in the road UNTIL I installed these bump stops. After installation I can handle curbs, potholes and bumps with ease. My truck's front end has been lifted somewhat and the ride quality has improved 100x!!!!! I smile each time I ride now.
Easy to install after raising tire off the ground. OEM ones on my 2006 GMC 2500HD were disintegrated with less than 50K miles. Note that it is normal that they touch frame when you lower wheel.
installed easily on my 2000 suburban that the originals had deteriorated. ride is much improved as these bumpers do have an important purpose in tandem with the torsion bars. without them the ride is harsh and they cushion the first bit of movement of the suspension.
Goes on into the stock location easily. I'm sure in another 8 to 10 years it will be replaced again. My trucks a 07 duramax and replaced them in 2018. They degraded and literally fell apart. It's suprising that the suspension rests on these bump stops. It's a remarkable difference swapping out the old ones. Easy cheap fix for much better handlingI noticed these control arm bumpers were in really bad shape while I was replacing my shocks. These were drop in OEM replacements, which only took 10 mins to install by simply jacking up the vehicle and removing a single bolt. The trucks ride has improved greatly.This truck had abusive owners who managed to hammer the stops into the frame. Clearly, these were due.4.5/5 I recommend getting an aftermarket set at dmax store or other site. Those sets tend to be much firmer than the oe set. I could flex this material with my hand, but could not at all with a aftermarket set.Relevance, Softer material that this oe set has will wear faster than a harder composite set.I bought these because I saw my were falling apart on my truck. I definitely didn't realize they would be so helpful in minimalizing the clunking noises when going over bumps. They were super easy to install, look much better and have eliminated some clunking... I would definitely buy again. Thanks. Genuine GM 15835666 Control Arm Bumper, Front
