    Question Rear Bump Stops w/ Eibach Pro Kit Springs

    I removed the aluminum spacers between the rear bump stop bumbers on my WS.6 when I installed my Eibach springs. They lowered the car about 1.5 inches and it seemed to make contact with the bump stops frequently before I removed the spacer. Is this something other people have noticed as well? My question is, does anyone make a stiffer bumber for this application? Maybe something polyurethane?

    I'd get something more gradual than the SS/WS6 bumsptops... like getting the TA or Z28 one.. you get a better feel and way more gradual than keeping those.
    Putting something harder will hinder you... that will make the rear spring rate sky-rocket and make you lose traction on the rear of the car... not something you want to do when cornering.

    Thanks for the help guys. I'll try putting a std T/A rubber in there and see what happens.
