id think either is fine. i had planned to do a spacer on my rear bumps if i went up to 35's to limit up travel/keep tires out of the doors.

That would be one hell of a thick spacer on the arm. I would extend with tube like mentioned. Personally I would just bite the bullet, cut it off and re install correctly. But only if it were on my truck. My friends truck would get a tube spacer

Or just add a thicker strike pad to the arm

It’s getting a tube spacer. One I painted the lower arms already and the spacer is easier. If it were my own truck, I would cut the cans off and do it right. This not being my truck, getting it not to smash the fuck out of the shock is good enough.

I would revalve the shocks, add a bypass, and ditch those bumps all together. Just my opinion
But with the way your buddy drives it’s probably a better idea to leave them in LOL

Thats my “phase 2” plan I’m laying out for him. I need to unfuck it first and get it operational again. He probably needs to save some money too.

How did that arm get such a fat dent with the shock bumping out before the bump?

Also, I think the OD of the bumpstop is a little bit under 2.5", which is is why the slit of the can allows you to pinch it. I think a straight piece of 2.5" as a spacer might slip over the lip of the bump.

Edit: the dent is from the stock rubber bumstop

Not even close to right. How ghetto is it to just cut a spacer from some 2.25” tubing to make a spacer to extend the bump can a little. I really don’t want to cut off the old bump cans and redo them.

The previous owner of my tundra did the same thing with the spacers. I took them off and found it was bumping on the shocks so he did that. I guess it works lol
