Upper control arm bump stops

Post by KC77Monte on Wed Feb 22, 2017 8:47 pm

Getting down to buying the final parts for the front end rebuild and needing bump stops for the upper control arms. Which ones work/fit and what don't? What did you guys find/buy for yours? Do ones for 70's model GM trucks work? Thanks

Just bought these from energy Suspension. Upper & lower for a '70/'81 Camaro are what you need

KC, I found that the uppers your asking about were pretty much a pain to install for me. They were energy suspension. I fought with them for quite a while and used lots of lube on them. They finally went in. I dont recall the part number but if I remember correctly they also fit a camaro like dynchel stated.

Interesting, I lubed mine up with silicone paste, any pulled them though (the top) with plyers, went right in.

Yep, that's all I put on all of the control arms I do. They hold up a helluvalot better than the rubber ones.
