Fixed bottoming out issue...

After having my QA1 put on a couple of weeks ago, i was still getting some issues with bottoming out on big bumps and ruts here in SE_Va area.

I picked up some
Superior 18-1901 Donut Style Coil Spring Spacer

http://www.amazon.com/Superior-18-1901-Donut-Spring-Spacer/dp/B00029K20W

After sliding these in(half-way in the middle area of coil) with the jeep lifted up on jack stands to take tension off the rear springs.

I took the jeep out and adjusted the QA1's to level 4, the jeep now rides a great deal better on harsh bumps and pot-holes in the highway.

Will these affect ride height or performance?
