So I put in my QA1s about two weeks ago now, originally had them set on 8, still bottoming out like crazy... Now I have them turned up to 12, and I still bottom out over small bumps and expansion pacts... The ride is really rough, I wouldn't mind it but the bottoming out is getting beyond annoying. I only have 36k miles and is all stock except for the shocks now, I never had this problem till maybe 10k miles ago and it has gotten worse and worse... What next? New rear springs? Or are the QA1s I got lemons? Thanks again

I have posted about this elsewhere but here goes again

Bottoming out is not a shock issue
Week standard or incorrect short springs cause it

The shock is only there to control the springs speed of travel NOT to limit it's travel

Shocks were a waste of mone as you are still bottoming out, it's your springs at fault
Billet catch can, Bwoody true cold air intake, LED high and low beam,led front fog lights,rear wavetrac, black gloss US staggered wheels, vredesteins, trinity and Tooner tune, EBC slotted/drilled rotors, yellow stuff pads.
Interior led's, 5" tips, straight through resonators and front silencers, mopar tcm, SRT lower grille emblem, front side 35% tints, blue under hood kit from BT, BC coil overs, Bwoody links, Stlllen headlight covers now gloss black, carbon fibre coil covers.

How much more to spend?
