    i have a 95 teg. i bought a coil over kit from ebay a while ago, and i bought a house and moved and never had the time to put them on, but when i got around of doing it, one of the bump stop was missing, what can i use in replacement or where can i get an after market bump stop for coil overs. i really don't wanna buy a new set for one set and now that i have them installed, my ride hight looks like crap. one corner is OEM hight and everthing else is 2inches lower, it looks really funny. HELP!!!!!!

    Well you really shouldn't have installed the coils without the bump stop in there. The purpose of the bump stop is 1.) to prevent your car from dropping so low when you hit a pothole or whatnot, and 2.) to prevent the shock from getting damaged when it compresses.

    Did you install new shocks when you put the coilovers on? If you're dropped more than an inch or so, you really need performance shocks. Most of the time when you lower your car you cut the bump stops in half to compensate for the lower ride height. The instructions of the springs/coilovers will usually tell you.

    Anyways, as to your original question, you should be able to buy the bump stops at the dealership obviously, or at most auto parts stores, like NAPA or Autozone.

    Yep you can get them at both of those places..

    As far as the ride height the bump stop doesn't have anything to do with that so you have a separate issue with the one corner being higher..

    well when i didn't find the bump stop, i kept the old springs and shocks, and yes i did buy after market shocks, but i went to auto zone and asked them if they have bump stops and it was a negative.

    I'd say check NAPA then, or go to the dealership.

    And your point is what.. I can read just fine I know he only went to Autozone.

    vtec919si since you couldn't get them at NAPA either, you're probably going to have to get one from the dealer. Might as well get one from the dealer since you only need the one corner.. yes it will be the same as what you already have unless somebody swapped the other 3 out for something else. I doubt that would be the case, but if you want to be 100% sure pull the bumpstop from the other side that you're missing and take it to the dealer to compare it with the one you are buying.
