Hi all..
I'm switching the rear control arms in Skeet's wagon over to the kind that accept a sway bar.. but those control arms don't have the 4wd bump stops. My plan is to hacksaw off the bump stops from the old control arms and send them with Skeet to be welded on later, unless..
do the bump stops and the sway bar interfere with each other in any way? I can't think of any way they would but I've never actually added the bump stops to a sway bar car before.
thanks
:banana:

bump stops are the rubber pieces on the control arms that hit the car when the suspesion bottoms out. I'm pretty sure that they won't interfere but I'm not exactly sure. What year of wagon is it?

no they won't get in the way unless you plan on lowereing it, then you'll have to pull them out or they'll get in the way. Hondasucks and I just did half of a 5-lug conversion on his 87 Turbowagon and they didn't interfere at all.
