Just got done installing front struts and now I realize I never installed a strut bumper. So I guess I could use the bumpers from the old struts but the problem is I already threw one of them away. Shouldn't the replacement struts have came with them? Or do you only get new bumpers when you replace the tubes/ bellows ? Since I only have one bumper, what are my options at this point ? Can I use one of the old mount kit rubber pieces instead ? Also since the top strut nuts are teflon lock nuts are they toast after removal ?

I see advance has at least one bellows with bumper in stock near me but I doubt they will have the teflon lock nuts but since the stock struts never had lock nuts I don't think reinstalling the nuts will,be that critical.

I think they're a little easier to get off

You can also just leave them out and never worry about it lol.

I’ve ran them without bumpers before and not had an issue. You can reuse the nylock nut again though, it’ll be fine. You can always put a little dab of loctite on it if that helps you.
