Looking for opinions of this set up


Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried this product or have an opinion on it?  Wouldn't the urethane foam bump stops do the same job for a lot less money?

Looks interesting, but I don’t see how it will make any difference with regard to the bottoming out of the struts.

And, it looks like it will actually raise the ride height an inch or to.

These do two things. It raises the effective top of the strut hydraulic top mount inside the isolator. It does thus give you an inch of addition compression stroke. 

The other thing it does is eliminate the rubber in the stock isolator. I’ll bet that really softens the ride, wouldn’t it? Where is that tongue  in cheek icon when I need it?  

The thing it does NOT do is give you an advertised “softer” ride. IF you are bottom out the shocks due to lowering springs, it gives you another inch of compression travel so you MAY not get that great jolt when that happens, but that’s it. Overall, I bet you get more road noise and vibration when driving without the upper isolator rubber. 

Just my impressions from what I see.
