I dropped the truck a month or two ago and when I hit a big bump I can hear the control arm bottoming on the frame. I went to look at the bump stops and there are none on the lower control arm where they are supposed to be. Where can I get some? New or used does not matter. Thanks.

you can get new from www.lmctruck.com or you can get used from your local boneyard..either way i'm sure they are very inexpensive.

You want to remove the rear bump stops, not the front.

Thanks for the tip. Got some new tires too and the truck actually turns instead of tonsofbodyrollandpushthroughturns.

You should be able to pick up an Energy Suspension poly bump stop at Advance Auto. They have a few different kinds and one that is the factory version in poly for the S trucks. I have to find mine that I bought way back when and put them on my Blazer. I cut the stock ones down, but it hits metal before it hits the bumpstop.
