Yep you're definitely riding on the bumpstops. When I installed my JICs, I initially lowered it about 2" and I was riding the bumpstops. I raised it about 1/2" and now the ride is great. Let us know how the B&Gs are after you get it off the bumpstops.

I wouldn't think the JIC's would have that problem since they are already shortened over an 1".

Anyway, over 2" is probably too low on the B&G's since I haven't confirmed how much if any the shocks are shortened. I know at 1.7" the TEINS have very little travel with stock bumpstops. Even if the B&Gs use shortened struts they use the stock bumpstops, IIRC.

I'd try to keep moving it up until your car moves. I agree with Jason on this one, you're most likely on your bumpstops. Isn't the ride really rough?

I raised it today. It looks like it raised but not too much. Id say i raised it about a 3/4 inch on the spring and it only looks like it went up 1/4? Doesnt sound right but i dont know ill have to call the company to see what they have to say about it.
