I have front and rear hydro competition bump stop kits I'm trying to install and for the life of me, I cannot get the rubber bump stops to fit over the retainer on the bracket. I've scoured the internet and the only advice I find is to use soap and put the bracket in a vise.

After hours of trying various different methods (and now with considerably less skin on my raw hands), I think I must be missing something.

Would appreciate any advice anyone can give me :)
