I don't have any experience with these and they are pricey but they are an option.

We use these because for the price they work great. They are a lot more progressive then the poly ones and have more bottom out resistance them the stock ones.

I've replaced my rears with the Energy ones (because my stock ones were shredded). As stated above, they are not progressive but do keep my tire out of the fender. They're probably better suited for a race car than a 'crawler.

Stack a few hockey pucks together, drill a hole through em and bolt em to the bottom of the coil mount. Cheap, easy, fast.

I put these on my rig. Very happy with how they perform and take abuse. Much more effective than the factory bumpstops.

I have 3" bump stops. I need new foam at the top. I'm going to look more into the sumo springs. Thanks
