tein springs

i just got my tein springs today. the installation papers say that you need to cut the front bump rubber stops by 0.6 inch. why do we need to cut the bumper stops?

also, does n e one out there jus have springs with stock shocks? are the shocks going to go bad? after i install it should it need a camber kit? and finally, would it have been better to buy the whole tein coilover system?

are you talking about the Teins S-tech? if so, i have the same and i just installed them as they are..never had to cut anything..didnt even have installation papers grin

i do still have stock shocks, had the springs about 6 mos now, ride gets a lil bumpy but not too much..i know i need to ugrade my shocks eventually..i dont think you need a camber kit coz they aren't too much of a drop..and yes, it would be better to buy the whole system if you have the dough spineyes
