Default Where can I find bump stops

Besides the dealer, looking for 17" rim bump stops. Where can I find them? Or if anyone has a set laying around

The Z28 bump stops are actually alot better. They aren't as harsh when they hit the axle tube, which helps both ride and handling. Bumpstops are part of the working suspension and they acually act to effectively increase springrate when in contact. If you have the 17" rim bumpstops, you are actually using an inferior part. This is one case where GM gave the lower models the better parts.

Im sure any dealership or GM parts direct or SDPC would have them.

I have 18' ZO6 wheels on my car now and I was told that I would need to upgrage to the 17' bump stop. For one I just bought this car and the bumps stops are gone off the car so I need a set either way.

If it even matters should I get the 16' bump stops and the SLP spacers? Or dont even bother with the spacers

all the SS/17" bump stops do is limit your suspension travel a lot to keep the tire from catching the wheel well lip. Personally I'd get the Z28 bump stops and roll the inner lip on the 1/4" panel wheel openings.

Just go to your local chevy dealership and get them, they're pretty expensive though. I think I paid $30 or $40 something each.
