    Eibach pro kit question.

    I recently installed the eibach pro kit, all four springs and both anti-roll bars. It said to leave the front bump stop stock but it said to replace the rear bump stops with the ones included in the kit. I have the part but I never saw any bump stops in the rear so I was wondering if anyone knows where they go?
    Thanks

    They're on the shocks. I didn't bother using them.

    I took the shocks off and still didn't see anything, is it under the plastic sleeve?

    Yeah, you can look at the Pro-Kit thread OP if you want to see the modifications that have to be made.

    Really though, unless you have a good amount of weight in the rear often, you won't need them thankfully.

    I just recently went through this as well, and it took quite a bit more searching than I was expecting to find out that you actually need to drill out the dimple pressed into the metal sleeve that locks the metal sleeve onto the damper rod. Once you've removed it, you can actually pull the metal sleeve off the damper rod, and then remove the plastic sleeve beneath it to gain access to the rear bump stops. I know most posters have said they didn't bother going to that extent and have had no problems running the stock bump stops with their Pro-Kits, but I figured hey, Eibach includes this new one in the kit and wants me to use it. I'm gonna use it!
