    2000 ½ to Silverado :help:
    Directions say use existing mounting hole on truck –there is no existing one
    New stop is ½ in bigger I diameter = don’t fit in cup
    Center is located almost dead center of upper support kind of hard to get a bolt there

    I’m guessing this cup has to be removed and new bump stop and hole moved back ½ in to clear upper support am I on the right track?
    Do the timbres have the same issue?

    My original yellow jounce on a 3/4 ton looks different than yours , there are no rings on it. Could be the wrong part for a 1/2 ton ???

    I don't own a 1/2 ton so bare with me, does the cup have a stud on it? Pull the nut, remove cup, install "timbren" in existing hole?

    boosters

    i looked at their web site and the description is a little confusing but i think they are only for 3/4 ton trucks ,the only mount like his i saw was for the 1/2 with press in boosters ,just popped in .:confused:

    They will work on ½ tons just not the 99 or 2000 4x4
    And they will fit a 99 or 2000 2wd
    I apparently did not see the 2wd :dizzy:

    Just make those work. Air hammer/chisle the cup off and use a right angle drill to make your own hole. Or sell me those and get the right ones. My 90' needs a set

    The ones you bought are for a 3/4 ton. I just installed those exact ones on my 2500HD. I don't know if Buyers makes them for the 1/2 tons yet??

    Just checked the web, the other part number buyers has for those kits are for 2007-2009 GM 1500 pickups. Looks like they don't make them for 2006 and older trucks.:confused:

    why couldnt you drill the bottom, you know where it has to go
    install the new bump stop then cut down old to what ever you want
    or off...

    On my timbrens, I Had the grease the cap & rubber, then beat it, then set it in place & drop the jack & let the suspension bounce back down to get those %(*%^ to fit into the cap..
