    Thanks I just wanted to make sure our terms agree. I have bottomed out a couple times but I was expecting it and didn't seem that bad to me.

    I have a 14 hatch and it bottoms out more than I expected. I'd like a slightly firmer ride, but I ran Eibach springs and koni yellow struts on my Legacy and it was crazy harsh.

    Yeah I don't want to cut the bump stops. Think it would just blow through travel still and hit even harder.

    Having this problem as well in a 2014 WRX with ~ 3000 miles on it. So it hasn't been driven hard nor is it worn out. Any road through major metro areas (Philly, NYC) are problematic. Seems to only happen at freeway speeds.

    The stock suspension sux royally. Do yourself a huge favor and order the RCE Tarmac Zero's from Miles at RaceComp. Best decision yet on that car. Got the 400 spring option. Rides nice, performs tremendously at autocross too.

    I bottomed out much more often in my 2010 impreza than my 2013 wrx. Ride height is about the same but stiffer. I'm looking into a stiffer set up, but even on bad South carolina roads I rarely bottom out and if I do I expect it coming.
