    I just got around to putting these on earlier today and after a short drive I'm thoroughly pleased! the Fortune rear shock that I had was far too short so I was running without the factory bump stops period. Subsequently the ride was brutal when it came to big dips or sharp jolts regardless of speed due to the metal on metal contact and the shock bottoming out. On a side note I'll update the Fortune Auto suspension thread for those interested about the progress with that. In the mean time I've swapped back to the factory shock with the much lowered spring (last time I checked the rear fender was 23" from the ground). In a week or so I'll give an update once I get some more realistic miles on the bump stops. At the moment I'm thinking one or two notches can go, but we'll see. Regardless I'd recommend these as a cheap, easy, fix to anybody with a lowered set up. The hardest part of the install was removing the bottom bolt on the shock so the torsion beam would drop low enough to remove the spring. From there all you have to do it remove the rear perch, which is secured via a 12mm bolt, drill out the hole with a 3/8" bit, and then rebolt the new stops in. I was replacing the rear shocks already so it only made sense to switch these out too. In case anybody was on the fence hopefully this will help out a bit. Included are a couple pictures for reference. First is the new bumpstop, second is the difference between the two, third is the factory perch that gets removed, fourth is the damage said perch did, and finally the car needs MoAr LoW!!1!, haha.

    Heres the problem. on the 205 40 17 i tested on a customers car if you cut 2 notches you will hear the tire rub on big dips.

    btw what size tire are you on. 23 inches from ground to fenerlip is over 3 inches drop from factory?

    My car on 215 40 17 is 23 5/8 in the rear

    Confused about what that is in your 3rd picture (picture of the spring seat in the axle). Is that a fortune part? It is not stock (or at least, not in the 2012 model!).
    Any update on how the bump stops are doing? I have a set but can't decide whether to install them or sell them.

    Thanks

    Got two sets, put them on two different 500's, totally pleased. I used a step drill to drill out the holes, took maybe 10 seconds each to get the holes big enough to pass the stud thru. I was changing springs anyway, so installation was a snap. It MIGHT be possible to squeeze the new stops between the coils without removing them, but you only have to remove the lower shock bolts to get the springs out anyway, so I would recommend just doing that and avoiding the cussing and skinned knuckles. Now the cars have tons of rear travel. Only tradeoff is that I now need stiffer rear shocks to moderate the travel. Highly recommended product.

    Yeah, I am confused by that part as well. Probably part of the coilovers.

    I am also guessing that these new bump stops mount to the bottom perches on the torsion bar, not to the top at the underside of the car body where the stock ones mount. At least that is what I see in the pictures. Is that correct?

    That is correct. They don't mount to the body.

    I saw it. I thought that I understood everything but I got confused by subsequent mumbo. I'll look into ordering a pair later tonight. I am going to install Koni's soon, so I can do these at the same time.

    Just ordered a set but when I log into your site it says that the order failed. However, Paypal says the order is complete. Let me know if there are any issues. I assume all is good.
