Post man knocked today...
and I installed my new bump stops!!!
Have not driven but I do not care as it will keep me from bottoming out!

They fit well..
for passenger side turn wheel to left.
Jack up on frame a good ways.. (tire can still be on ground)
You can chock rear tire if you desire..
Flat head screw driver used to remove remnants of old spongy bump stop stuck up in cup....
Install new bump stop by slipping part away from tire in first then prying reest of it into cups where there are some tabs holding it in..

Repeat opposite side but turn wheel other way...

Easy to install.. (little dirty from road grime)...

I am happy!!! so here is solution and I am sure others sell the part but RMS came thru to get new PN and send me pic so I thank them.

here is to a smooth bump free ride

Drove it... finally to Home Cheapo to pick up some Home improvement stuff...

Felt like what I remember?? maybe... it has been a long time since I had the original bump stops..

I can say it felt great going over speed bumps.... no metal on metal contact anymore...

BUY them if you need bump stops

Has anyone looked at the bumpers made by Energy Suspension? It seems that they would last longer then the rubber ones...

Bump!

Any other sources for these parts?  Are the sources still valid?  Did any one get this to work at a dealer?

Mine are shot and I want to get these replaced.

I was checking that out after seeing it posted in another thread. Looks like it might be perfect for those of us who have leveled out the truck and now have a gap between the factory bushing and the A-arm.
I'm gonna try it out in the spring.

I finally have some time to replace these and I wanted to get them local.  I was trying the dealer but he said this part does not fit the 02 Z66.  I did not believe this as you and others have had success.  I wanted to start with the original part and let him walk through for himself.

I ran into the same wall with the front shocks.  He was able to find a part number that fits but could not tell me the number or if the parts were Bilstein as OE.

It is always fun to have the right information.  Especially the right information from the internet!  The parts guy was confident that the information was wrong because I found it here.

You guys rock. Since having new tires installed 4 months ago my 2002 Z-66 seemed to bottom out which I blamed on the tires. After reading this thread I ordered new bump stops part no. 15153958 from RVS Auto. OMG the ride is sooo much better, the truck sets about an 1 inch higher in front. Best 40 bucks I ever spent. Super easy job, but I did remove the tires and wheels just so I could check the brakes. Good thing I did the ijits at the tire shop had over tightened the lug nuts and the rotors are showing some warpage. Can't complain too much since they are the original rotors with 188,000 on them. Just hate it when someone else cost me money. Lesson here is after having new tires installed always check you lug nuts.

Anyone have info on the rears?? This post says thay are different then the fronts. Seems we have clearly established the right part number, and a few people that sell them. But My rears are bad. I have not looked at front, but I am sur they are shot too!

Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
