So the weekend I went ahead and lowered my truck.. only problem is I can't get the bump stop to stick. I've tried pushing it with a flathead but it just keeps popping off..

Did you cut it in the valley or the peak is what I was meaning. You have to cut it on the peak if that makes sense. There are like fingers in the cups for them that have to grab a hold of.

Mine were a legit pain in the ass to get back in. I ended up spraying it with wd40 and bam they slide in.

You have to cut where the black line is or slightly off. you can't cut it in the skinny part. It can be lower but has to be on the wider side.

Cut about another 1/4-3/8 off of them. has to be closer to flat or on it.

Correct. Maybe like and 1/8 away from the wider part. See how the top of it originally was, make it look close to that. Getting closer to the wider part is better than further.

Awesome!! Thank you so much I will continue this after work tomorrow. Funny how it took me a few tries to adjust airbags for my first time. But it took me about two hours dealing with bump stops until I gave up. lol
