    When I first read that i would be using hockey pucks I was like uhh, and then I saw a picture on another thread on this website and that actually makes a lot of sense to me. I will get teraflex bumpstops for the front, but for the new rear bumpstops, the actual bumpstops need to be replaced, would the crown automotive stock hight ones work best?

    OME 927 front springs
    OME 948 rear springs
    Bilstein shocks for the front
    Teraflex front bumpstops (exact ones?)
    Crown automotive rear bumpstops
    Two hockey pucks on either side for rear bumpstops also

    And best place to buy these?

    You need to use the stock bumpstops PLUS the hockey pucks , one without the other would be worthless and blow the rear shocks
    for every inch of lift you need an inch more bumpstop

    I took mine to a shop and had them do it. They only charged me one hour labor. Well worth it, don't hurt yourself.
