Hi guys

Jacked up my car over the weekend and noticed my front bump stops are crumbling away. 

 

How easy are they to replace?

 

Thanks!

Chris

Remove strut, compress spring, remove top hat of strut, replace bumpstop. Reassemble...
Easy if you have spring compressors. Almost impossible without, unless your into dodgy stuff.

Even easier if you have adjustable height coilovers.

Thanks Jack. Was hoping it might avoid taking out the strut and getting a wheel alignment. May make sense to replace the struts completely!

You won't need a alignment. The 2 bolts on the strut bottom will not affect wheel alignment.
You could just pull the bump stops out. Will give you more travel.
Put a cable tie on the shock shaft, and check it every now and then. Just to see how much travel you are using.
If you are still bottoming it out, you need stiffer springs, or more ride height. Or slow down when hitting kerbs and speed humps....

Well, won't affect it much. I always put the bolts in loose, then move the slack towards the neg camber position and then tighten the 2 bolts. Always in same spot then.
