I just had h&r #50413 springs and bilstein sport springs installed. I am experiencing bottoming out (hitting the bump stop) on the front end over bumps which i don't consider extreme. The new front struts were cartridges, the old bump stops were left out per the instructions (the new ones have internal bump stops...) The front is now approx. 1.5" lower..does anyone else have this problem? I can't imagine this is considered normal! I just looked on h&r's website and this spring kit number is for 89-96, 6 and 8 cylinder cars..But i thought the v-8 was heavier??? any help is appriciated.....
