    Bump stop

    Hello everyone. Just bought lowering spring and need a bit of help.
    I know that the OEM bump stops get progressively harder from bottom to top and the new smaller ones are just hard.

    Should I keep the stock bump stops our get shorter new ones?

    They only lower you an inch or so...There's not really a need for changing the bump stops at this point.

    I thought so. It only an inch in the front and about .70 of an inch in the rear

    You should be fine. I did a lot of research on springs/coilovers and such a few months back and not many people ever need to do it with Subarus, especially since you aren't going too low at all.

    I have eibach lowering springs on my hatch and cut 10mm off the bottom of my bump stops. I didn't want to not cut them just to find out I'm riding them allot so I cut them as a precautionary.
