question, I am getting the E36 bump stops Tuesday and I was at the shop and when he removed the OEM (no bump stops at all) bump stops it seems the car sat lower? I thought with the shorter bump stops the car is no longer sitting on them (like OEM) why does the car seem lower? So with the shorter bump stop there will be more travel because the car is not sitting on the bump stop getting more travel to hit the bump stop is this correct? I am guessing when he took the bump stop all the wy out it compressed the shock and it sat lower? Wouldn't it do that with a smaller bump stop? Does this men my shocks are wore out?
