I need to add some bumpstop, just curious how reliable the glue is on the hockey puck after it takes some hits when flexed out. Trying to avoid removing the springs to bolt in the rubicon express type.

They hold for a while but pop off easily. Maybe liquid nails was not the right type of adhesive.

I used RTV to stick some on bottom at front. They've been there for years. Yes, with a bit prying, they will pop off. However, they only see compression during use.

I'm sure you could find a good "glue" to use, but the mess and expense is probably not worth it. I added a hockey puck in the back, but drilled em out and used a bolt.

Lazy. :lildevil: :laugh:

I bolted mine in. You only have to push the bottom of the spring away to drill and tap, its not that hard. How do you plan on cleaning the spring perch well enough to get the glue to stick?

Mine is not rusty. I used a brush, then a wet rag. Let dry. Apply a thin layer of RTV to puck. Apply to spring perch. It should be dry by next day.

I wonder if you can melt them together with a torch :D

Was holding well on my XJ when it was trailered off into the sunset. Worked well to repair running shoes or to get a few more miles out of them.

no need to remove the springs
1) pull the rubber bumpstop out of the cup
2) using a ratchet with a swivel adapter remove the bolt and cup
3) drill a hole in the puck
4) slide them between the coils
5) using a longer bolt, bolt the cup through the puck
6) put the rubber bumpstops back in, soap helps them slide in

Sorry, i actually meant hockey pucks on the bottom of the spring perch. I dont want to extend the upper because of the housing around the bumper catching the spring.

I filed the perch to smooth metal and filed the pucks to rough up the surface. Liquid nails and done.

What I did was,

weld a bolt on the bottom perch and then drilled in the center of the pucks and then bolted them in. I have had them like that for 4 years and no issues.

I scratch them up with a wire wheel, then silicon them in. They last until you want them out, or until someone wants nice ones like the currie spring retainer/bumpstop combo.
