So as I’m installing my lift kit i got
these hockey pucks to extend the lower location for the bumpstops where the
bumpstops impact on the lower side. Now I read this in the bunch of the
forms especially for the jeep TJs a lot of people are putting this on. Now I
don’t really recommend this this as it isn’t a purpose-built item, but it might be
something that it only costs a dollar or so that you can put on there to save your
wheel from bashing the fender if a full-blown extended bumpstop mount isn’t in your budget. So, I’m gonna do this and see how it works.
It’s kind of temporary so it’s what I’m going to do. I’m not going to drill it because
it is temporary but I’m going to see if I can figure out which glue works best
for bonding these hockey pucks to steel. So I’m going to grind down both both
surfaces with a wire wheel get them nice roughed up and then I’m going to do one
with this gorilla epoxy that’s a structural gap filler for metal wood
ceramics last and most plastic and then i’m also going to do another
experiment with this contact cement from permatex that says it’s for instant
bonding applications for rubber to glass and metal that’s also heat and water
resistant. What I’m gonna basically going to be doing is adding a hockey
puck right there on top of this mount. What I’ve got to do is I’ve gotta
clean the paint off that mount and get it all scuffed up really good and also do the
same of the the bottom of this hockey-puck. Also, I don’t know if I’m
going to need one or two but I’m just going to put one on for now and then I’m
going to do some testing and with some flexing a little bit and see if I
need to add another one. Luckily the coil springs on the Teraflex
lift aren’t wound so tightly that you can’t fit a hockey puck through.
Now I don’t know if that’s going to be the case with the weight of the
vehicle on it, so I’m going to go ahead and install one beforehand or perhaps
just while it doesn’t have the shocks attached and while the weight is up on jacks. Let’s try it out Alright so it’s it’s on there pretty
good. Now of course I’m not hitting it with the force that the vehicle is going
to be hitting it with i also don’t plan on doing any off-road racing so it might
do the job. That was the gorilla glue. Now let’s try to look at the contact
cement. So for this one I can tell that I can move it around a little bit with my hands
so that it worries me a little bit. Although that might be a little bit…oh no
I just twisted it off so that was the liquid cement or the contact cement I just
twisted it off. That’s a good test so let’s try that with the gorilla epoxy. I think Gorilla Epoxy is the winner so what
do you guys think in the comments below. Obviously probably putting a bolt
through is the winner although I have heard some people say
their hockey pucks fall apart when they do that but that probably depends on what kind of quality or what material puck you buy but I’m gonna go for the epoxy since I’m
just doing it temporarily and I hope that helps somebody out there and you all have a great day!

    Holding the puck in place may work with shoulder bolt and fender washers. Idea is to hold it in place without compressing the puck.

    Nice video!

    Did you read instructions for the Contact Cement? That is NOT how you glue two surfaces together. You apply a small amount to each surface, then wait until it is tacky to touch, then put the two surfaces together. It adheres on "contact". I have used contact cement for many years to adhere laminate to counter tops, and am very familiar with product. With the way you applied it, it was a given that there would not be a good bond.
