Front coilover mounts

I have been eyeing coilovers for the front when I go the teraflex longarm setup. One problem I am seeing is that all the mounts require modification to the front spring bucket. I have teraflex speed bumps in there now and don't want to lose them. At first I thought the rebel mounts might work but they appear to require significant modification to the front bucket. Does anyone know of any mounts which do not require modification of the front coil buckets or that will work with the teraflex speed bumps?

On the topic of coilovers, the new rock krawler 2 5/8 setup looks really nice and is the shock/spring combo I am currently favoring.

Couldn't you just add an air bump can like you would for any other air bump? Or are the speed bumps some odd size?

The teraflex speed bumps (I have the jounce tubes as well) go through the hole in the bucket and are held in by a retainer ring on the top side. The problem is that they extend past the top of the coil bucket. Personally, I would prefer weld on coilover mounts but I am sure that hte EVO ones can be welded on. I will have to see the install on the EVO brackets to see what they require to be done to the coil bucket. After work I plan on calling Teraflex to see if they have any suggestions.

Will the speed bump not fit in there?

Pulled that image from google... not sure of the mount, but you apparently can do what you are looking to do.

Talk to Rebel I have their coil kit and it works great with the Teraflex long arms. I have the bump just like the picture. Ask for Bond if anyone can make it work it is Bondini...

I can't put the same picture twice so look in the Ripp Contest https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=91991 you will see the coil kit on my 2007 JK. Offroadgeorge entry

I think the problem will be that the teraflex speed bump goes through and above the factory bucket. The picture you provided looks like it is all under the coil bucket.

if you want to keep all your factory stuff def check out rebel. they were the first to come up with coilover mounts and air bumps that utilize the factory stuff i think. evo came in a lot later and pretty much has the same design overall. go with whoever came up with it first i say.

Okay.... I am not really familiar with the Speed Bumps. Just assumed they were similar to bump cans. If i were you, I'd try and make bump can mounts work... the engineering has already been done (and assuming the speed bumps would fit and work inside of those kind of mounts). Of course, that is if you can't find what you are looking for with the coil bucket.

The teraflex speed bumps do go above the bucket though. That is my concern. After thinking about it some more I may be ok with a bucket below since it would just remove some of the required bump stop pad height on the axle.

If you can do a long arm and coil overs, you can surely mount those bump stops. Looks like they would only take a piece of dom tubing for a mount sleeve.

Some build info here:

Teraflex makes a mounting can or you could make something similar that would allow you to cut off the coil bucket and mount like a hydro bumpstop.

I have those cans for the rear. That is a good thought. I could turn them upside down and possibly use them on the front.
