They are pieces that help the suspension from really bottoming out. Some are poly material, some are foam material.
On the jeep, the rear bumpstops are completely separate from the shock or springs. They are set in the middle of the spring, and when the jeep hits a big bump and your lowered, the bumpstop will hit the plate behind the brake and prevent metal on metal contact
The front bumpstops are actually on the strut itself, and do the same thing, keep the strut from blowing itself up
Bwoody makes rear poly stops and they work great, or you could trim down your stockers, so they arent constantly hitting
