BUMP STOP Frame Repair - FR-103
Sometimes the frame flange for mounting the front suspension bump stop may be bent up or cracked due to some prior heavy impact of the tire on a curb or large pot hole. If so, then it needs to be straightenied and/or welded as necessary. If the flange was cracked or appears to be weakened, you can fabricate a steel plate 1/8-inch thick to fit on top of the frame flange. Drill the holes in the new plate and install bolts before welding the reinforcement piece into place.
