My front bump stops keep coming out of their seat and it makes a really annoying clunk/squeaking noise every time I go over a bump. I'm about 2" lower than stock right now on coils. Does anyone know how to properly re-seat the bump stops so they stop coming out? Should I cut them? If so, does anyone know of a way to cut them while on the car because it's too cold outside to be taking coilovers off.

I think you just hit a *really* big bump.

But srsly, I just pushed mine up in by hand. Never caused me any drama.

Are you talking about the spring perches? Because those little foam bumpstops don't have enough mass in them to clunk, let alone make any noise.

I'm talking about the dust shield/ bump stop assembly. They don't really clunk, its more of the sound you get with a bad swaybar bushing. I've tried pushing them up by hand, but they work themselves loose after about a month and the noise comes back. Would it be a bad idea to glue them up there?

I don't think it would hurt to glue them.

Oh right I forgot about the plastic part. Maybe instead of glue try wrapping a couple layers of electrical tape over the shock shaft at the very top to make it thicker. I can't see any type of glue holding up, you're gluing something porous to polished steel, that's like the worse combination of materials for glue or epoxy.
