I just got done with my 3/4 drop, i used 3" coils in the front. I was just wondering why its a lot rougher going over pot holes than it was stock.. is this because im hitting my bump stops?, i cant tell. i cut about an inch off of them but thats not very much.

the springs are also probably a stiffer springs seeing as you have taken away 3 inches of it's travel. . .

Sounds like you are hitting the bumpstops. Try cutting a little more off your bumpstops. And like everyone else said, avoid those potholes if you can. Your rims will thank you.

ok.... im just a little leery to cut too much off the bump stops, mainly because i dont want to cut them too far and end up hitting the frame, then i would have to notch that
