Took rear bumpstops out and putting some poly ones in attched to axle. I had to pull the spring out and let the car down so I could measure it all and man its close.

Just as a point of clarification, you physically cannot be "hella flush" and tucking simultaneously. Hella flush is essentially "poke/stretch" when your sidewalls are resting on the entire width of the fender arch opening and the wheels are slightly protruding. If your wheels were >2" wider, you might be able to pull it off.

*instant edit* This is on bumpstops anyway, so it's kinda cheating, but I know this is all in jest. FYI, taking the stock 17" wheels and Pirelli tires and removing the bumpstops copmletely results in fender rubbing at full damper compression. That pic is leaving about an inch of compression travel on the table, not that you can really use it without rolling the fender lips.

On a more useful note, what are these poly bumpstops you're referring to? Have any pics, dims, and rates to share?

no this is actually no bumpstops and not down all the way just measuring for the new bumpstops I will be installing onto the back. I will be selling them in my section soon im just measuring all the heights to give the max amount of travel before the tires would hit the fenderwell for those that want the max travel in back without worrying about rubbing on anything.

My car is low in the rear 23 7/8 on 215 40 17 from ground to fenderlip and rides pretty darn well. Both the adjustable BC Shocks and KONI rides the same cept the BC adjustable shocks are MUCH easier to adjust.
