So I was doing some rust repair in my wheel wells with the tires off and i noticed that my bump stops are either cracked or missing half, So I'm going to replace the front two

There is nothing in the Bentley about replacement

Could someone tell me how to do this, do I need to take out the coil over spring? if so just say so and I'll get my mechanic;ol;

No help here, but was wondering where you were able to source replacements?

Generic from suspension shops may work, but otherwise they are not available new, so check out wreckers. Most are in good nick.

Id' say get saab originals they are high quality, I find any rubber component I buy from the chain suspension stores here in Aus is absolute rubbish and cracking within a couple of months (no oil on them, not overtorqued) just chinese rubbish.

yeah as they age, they can take small bumps but high speed big downforces will probably break them.

Front yes, the springs push against the top of it. Rears are seperate.
