Default Did you yo jdm slam it too much?

I refreshed my '93 LE's suspension with FCM mounts and bumps, and polyflex bushings.

Even with the FCM spacers, I lost about 1/2 inch of ride height, and I found that was too much for the Vermont roads.

I just installed these guys:

Usual FM high quality, works as advertised. I just wanted to make sure you guys knew they were available.

These don't do anything for increasing bump travel, just your ride height. suspension travel remains the same.

You are correct sir!

The FCM NB mounts help with travel, these just shim the suspension a bit so you don't drag your belly on the rough roads.

With my suspension, it was a welcome addition.
