The bumpstops would only need to be shortened if the car has been significantly lowered, which I doubt a set of springs would do on these cars. Your problem is simply that, well, you changed the springs.


To elaborate, if the car is slamming into bumps and dips as if it has no suspension at all, you have three possibilities:

1. Coil-bind. The spring is being 100% compressed when you smack bumps.
2. Bottoming out the shock. The shock is at 100% compression. Dangerous.
3. Lowered car is sitting on the bump stops, which aren't nearly as progressive/forgiving as springs.

All three point to faulty design.
