Hey guy, been lurking on here for a while as Iíve been trying to build my buggy. Iím running 6Ē over beam with Coilovers. Iíve seen a lot of guys running this setup with no real bump stops. I have the larger, shaft mounted bottom out bumpers but Iím curious if I should build real bump stops to hit the upper arm. Buggy will be very light. Guess I could try it without and see if the front shocks bottom hard enough to need it. Any advise would be great. Thanks
Jesse

Yes i would highly recommend both upper and lower stops for the front suspension.
As you know shocks are not cheap.
Are you using limit straps? They work well keeping shock from over extending.
I used them on other buggies I built.

Yes limit straps for sure, bump plates arenít too hard to figure out so maybe Iím just being lazy. I started building this little buggy thinking it would be cheaper then the prerunners I used to build... not much cheaper.
Thanks for the advise
Jesse
