What size bump stops to have?

Hi All,

Got a full Koni (yellow) shock absorber and spring setup about to be fitted to my V6 156. The springs are -40mm lowering springs. I was just wondering if i would need to increase the size of the bump stops on the rear of the car to stop the tyres from hitting the wheel arches?

demon tweeks sell the bump stops in all different sizes, so was just wondering if any of you guys have changed them when lowering your 156?

Any help appreciated,

I don't think anyone has needed to change the bumpstops.

Re: What size bump stops to have?

if you ever need to use bump stops to prevent rubbing it means you either have the wrong offset alloys, or the wrong size tyres, or you've gone too low, but no matter what it definately means you need to do something about it other than fitting bigger bump stops.

in this case it wont be an issue, 40mm is nothing to worry about.
