    bump stops

    Do i need new ones? and does it matter if i get Poly Bump Stops? Do you need them if you get wider tires/bigger diameter? Just wondering since i was under there and now that i have lowered my car does anything need to be done with them?

    Your bump stops look fine in your other thread with the spring install.

    For my drag wheels, I ground the lip back on the mounts and I remove the aluminum spacers when I go to the track. This gives just a bit more sidewall clearance. Probably not required -- but it was simple to do and peace of mind is a good thing.

    I took the spacers out because I got tired of the car slamming on the rear end everytime I hit a bump on the freeway
