I plan on trying to install my eibach sportlines and koni reds within the week. My question is will i need to cut the bumpstop on my sportlines? i don't know very much about suspension and luckily the guy that will be helping me was once a mechanic. any other suggestions to make the installation go smoothly. i know a spring compressor is neeeded and i'm sure air tools are pretty much necesary. anything i'm missing?

Each type of spring is different, my eibach pro-kits came with directions that said to cut the fronts 30mm and leave the back ones alone.
If yours didnt come with instructions contact eibach and they will tell you what to do. Dont just cut them randomly or in half.

contact here

the directions that came with my springs were minimal. they didn't have anything that said whether or not to cut the bumpstops. i hope someone who installed sportlines reads this and can help me.

brainfart, i totally forgot the springs i have were installed on a 2000gsr already. they look brand spanking new. so i will assume for now if they needed to be cut (bumpstop) they already were. damn i think i'm getting dumber as i get older

I have neuspeed sports and didnt cut mine. I called neuspeed first to confirm though, and they said I didnt need to.

bump stops are not part of the spring they are part of the shock.

indeed they are, but the shock will be more compressed with shorter springs.

also, since i see you have a 95, yours may be somewhat disintegrated as some of mine were on my 94...

bringing this thread back up. i took my bumpstops off without thinking. 2 are longer than the other 2. which ones are the fronts, i'm guessing the longer ones are for the front and the shorter ones are for the rear?. cuz i have to cut the front too.

My sportline kit for a DA says trim 20 mm off a typical bump stop and no trimming for the rear. However, my stock bump stop is exactly the size they say to cut too. So 1.5 inches was the size for the front and 2.25 inches for the rear....

The problem i'm having from my install TODAY is how do i get the stock bumpstop onto my Koni shock?

There is a bulge there and i've tried pulling hard with a washer attached. I can only get a 1 inch cut bumpstop onto it. The auto parts store is out of bumpstops too so not much of an option. Should i try harder?
