Re:


I know this is an old post - but thought I'd add my two cents worth.

recently replaced shocks all round, and all bump stops were completely dead.

They are fitted into the top of the strut boots. My struts had collapsed and were riding almost entirely on the bumps stops.

Identifying a damaged one is difficult until you have felt a new one, they should be quite firm, and difficult to compress.

Not spongy like foam-rubber as mine were.

How did they get that way? about 5 years of fire tower visits and trips over high-plain passes in the mountains. Lots of rocks and hard pot-holes. I feel lucky not to have damaged the turrets.

You get the stop and the dust cover. They must be properly fitted to prevent the seals in the struts from failing prematurely. When they fail, they crack up or disintegrate and the shock fails once the dust ingresses into the strut shaft's seal- once 'leaking' oil is visible, the gas may be long gone too.

Best to change the 'boots' 'stops' every 10 years or so, or every time you put new struts on for piece of mind. Note: Sometimes, new struts may be supplied with them, so factor that in when you are buying.
