you should cut the bump stops, the instruction manual on the tein springs say to cut bump stops 1/2 an inch

Iím really happy with them.
if you cut the bumpstops you might get the front down a little lower, more than likely you are riding on the bump stops right now because they are stock height and lowered springs, it will also limit the length of strut rod travel so you are not getting the full potential of that struts performance because it cant "compress" as it was designed to do

Oh... Thanks! I didn't know that... I'll see if I have time to mess with her this weekend.
I ordered a pair of adjustable sway bar links, 300-360mm, but they're meant for Hondas.

They have 10mm end bolts, but I talked to the seller, and they're supposedly including the adaptors for 12mm. Like what's on these other pair.

Hopefully they work. I have a clunking noise, even before I replaced the struts, I'm hoping it's just from bad sway bar links, but I'm afraid it might be from a worn sway bar bushing.

Sorry I didnít mean to hijack this discussion. The lower control arm back bolts are fine. I know because I replaced the bushings to the lower control arms just a little over a year ago. And I had the clunking issues then already. Iíve inspected the sway bar bushings and they seemed fine, but canít really count them out yet.

Back to trimming the bump stop, my ride doesnít feel like Iím not even bottoming out. And Iíve tested before and after I went with the Bilstein B8, and the ride is a lot comfortable now. With the stock strut I was bottoming out, and the bump stop was stock length also. So I donít know if I should trim or not.
