    There are small black plastic round stopper things in the bump stops, dig those out with a screw driver, grease up the bump stop and it should come out of the spring. Then put the plastic bit back into the bump stop.

    Oh crap don't tell me there are 2 bump stops hidden down the large top hat thing which sits inside the spring

    I got 2 poly bump stops with my Koni adjustables and couldn't figure whether they were fronts or rears but they didn't fit the front and I could see any rear ones. If they were inside the tophat affair it's no wonder I'd didn't spot them.

    If they are inside there I've still got them and might remove the springs to fit them this weekend.
