AbstractA hydraulic damper for use in a suspension device of a vehicle such as an automobile includes a main body forming a cylinder, a packing cap fitted on and fixedly secured to one end of the main body, a piston rod connected to a piston movably received in the cylinder and extending through the packing cap to the outside of the cylinder, a spring seat mounted on the outer periphery of the main body for receiving and supporting one end of a suspension spring, and a bump stop mounted on the packing cap for abutting a bump rubber mounted on the chassis of the vehicle and intended to bump against the damper when the damper is contracted. The bump stop includes a bump cap fitted on and fixedly secured to the packing cap, a bump plate for directly abutting the bump rubber and a plate cap formed to be integral with the bump plate and adapted to be fitted on and hooked to the bump cap, thereby preventing the plate cap from coming off the bump cap.
