    It should, and they are made from a poly material instead of foam so hopefully they don't degrade as much.

    Thanks for that information. I ordered 2 and now I'm waiting for them. Can you also tell me what the thing is in the below picture? Is it supposed to look like that? I looks naked to me for some reason

    Sway bar end links like was said. They're supposed to look like that but if the rubber parts are damaged they should be replaced. They're not naked lol.

    This is what my bump stops looked like after 155k miles. I think I could have gone a few more miles...

    Pictured with the Z71 parts I mentioned earlier. The stock replacement parts are rounded at the top instead of pointy. Rides great now, just have to replace a bunch of steering parts now. Noticed the pitman arm is wiped out. Going to replace the tie rods, idler and bracket, and ball joints. while I'm at it.
