I'm rebuilding my front end, had everything powder coated (crossmember, control arms, spindles, ect.), looks great. I put all new bushings and ball joints in
no problems removing or installing them. I am getting my a$$ kicked installing the bump stops. I got the poly stops from the Fierostore and the crossmember
is still removed. Any tips on installing them? Thanks for looking and any help is appreciated. A bigger set of nuts is not an option. Lol

Well, the '88 front bump stop just bolts on... so we'll have to assume it's the '84-'87 bump stop that's being difficult to install here.

Like many of the finer things in life... just add some lube and pound it in.

If you wish to be gentler, I suppose you could temporarily leave the spring out and use the lower control arm to press in the poly bump stop (using a hydraulic jack to push the LCA up). Of course, the whole assembly will need to be mounted in the car to do it in this manner.

Thank you gentlemen, Patrick is correct its an 87 . Sorry for being slow still trying to figure out how the Packers lost yesterday. I did get them pressed after the game yesterday. Just took plenty of lube and beer power. Thanks again guys.
