Did you guys use the ones the pro-kits came with or the factory ones?

i would assume you would want to use the ones that came with your kit, otherwise you might have to trim your factory ones. or you can always just roll with no bumpstops.

I used the kit ones. They're probably in there for a reason ;)

Okay, I guess I'm a moron. What are bumpstops?

All a bump stop is, is piece of hard foam rubber like stuff that goes around the strut shaft to help soften harsh impacts. Aftermarket springs recommend trimming these to a specified height to utilize their springs more correctly than the stock springs.

Here's a good post explaining further with images...

I used the ones that came with the springs. They fit looser than the stock ones though - probably not an issue though.

they give you new ones for the rear struts, so use them. Re-use the stock ones on the front. hth.

For reference on bumpstops -

The Ground Controls use GC bumpstops for the fronts (you discard all of the whole sleeve which contains the bumpstops), and the rears you need to cut in half.
