Zzp doesn't include new bump stops. Options are keep stock bump stops intact or cut the first ring off for a bit extra movement over large bumps.

I trimmed the fronts. There weren't really rear bump stops that were trimmable. There was the metal cone that the spring is installed over.
Its not riding on the bump stops.
Thanks gents.

This was it, it was riding on the stock bump stops. Cut an inch off them, couldnt get the oem plastic boot off, so i couldnt cut all the bump stop i wanted.

Doesnt bounce any more, rear end come down a 1/4" too.

Thanks again.
