Bumpstop mount version 2.0 was made completely from plate. It placed the bumpstop closer to the frame and further away from the tire. Note the slight angle, which tucks the top of the bumpstop in closer to the frame as well as kicks the contact tip out closer to the end of the axlehousing. Sway-A-Way’s Brian Bell advised that no more than a 10-degree angle should be used because sharper angles create bigger side loads on the bumpstop shaft. We played it safe and went with 7 degrees.
