To the best of my knowledge, Eibach does not instruct you to cut Camaro bumpstops. Perhaps an Eibach coil owner will post the Eibach instructions.

The Eibach instructions specifically tell you not to cut the bump-stops.

The Camaro has a progressive bump stop to begin with. The upper portion of the stop is very soft and you can easily compress it almost an inch simply by squeezing it in your hand. While cutting it is probably harmless, we don't recommend it mainly because it doesn't achieve anything except give you a visual appearance of more shock travel.

This thread is about EIBACH and what need to be done to correctly install EIBACH. Can we please all stay on topic and forget selling parts to a person that already biught EIBACH parts?

EIBACH instructions say do not cut the bumpstops -- end of discussion.

So do we all agree to not cut the bumpstops and time the bushes to your new ride height are the best way to get the pest performance and ride quality out of a set of EIBACH springs.

Ummm...I assume this post was not meant for me and it was just coincidence that it followed my non-sales related post on the subject? It's pretty obvious that you as a fellow vendor participated in more of this conversation than any other vendor has...
