    This will probably sound a stupid question, but am going to be fitting a set of new shocks and springs from hottuning soon, which should give a 40mm drop.

    I'll be using new top mounts etc and making up the struts etc before fitting to car.

    Will the drop affect the bump stops? If so, do I a) not fit them b) fit them but cut them down or c) leave them as they are?

    Or are there shorter bump stops available?

    Cheers!

    Most of the time they get cut down.

    If there is nothing stated in the kit then PM Edwin from hottuning immediately and he will find out from the technical department before you fit them
