Rear Bump Stop Cups
Hey Folks! I'm in the process of refreshing my rear suspension on the GTV at the moment but I am having the common problem of replacing the Bump Stop Cups/Supports. Alfa Part Number 60615402, I need one for each side.
From what I have gathered, there is no more stock, and unlikely to be any more unless someone comes up with a manufacturing alternative....
So what do we do in the mean time? I have Koni Sports Adjustable Rear Shocks and brand new Eibach springs, which I have been assured by a Motor-Racing friend will be fine without the bump stop as the stiffer spring rate and slight drop in height will probably make hitting the "bump stop" a rareity.
But From what i have seen the Spring needs the cup to locate correctly on the rear subframe. so without it, your suspension isnt aligned perfectly.
So what do we do? My Bump Stop Cups are completely rotten from about halfway down to the bottom and both bum stops are loose (a 2.5" hole in the bottom of each one, so wont hold onto the bump stop at all!)
Do we really just fit rusty cups in place to locate the spring and run without the bump stops? Or do we go 2nd Hand, hoping they last a little while longer?
