So do you have lowering springs on your car? If you dont i really dont think it will make a difference. But if you do, when you installed your springs you were suppose to cut the bump stops in half.

Somewhat better..yes..BUT,

Stock struts cannot handle being lowered period. They are most likely blown at this point. removing part of the bumpstop will get you some more travel..but you really need a good set of aftermarket struts. I recommend getting the Adjustable KYB AGX's.

Then use either the Koni microcellular bumpstops, or the Progress polyurethane bumpstops. The stock rubber isnt up to the abuse with a 2 inch drop.

These are the Konis..(courtesy of www.motivational.net)


These are the Progress..(courtesy of me :) )

The AGX's are around $400

The Konis are around $70

The Progress are around $20

If you do the work yourself...

Labor is free...if not....

add in the labor to swap the struts out.

So either 470.00 plus labor

or

420.00 plus labor depending on what Bumpstops you choose and labor in your area/shop

its awesome how they work, but i dont think i would need them for that , is there another type of strut/shock that would make the ride a little bit better and doesnt cost as much?
