Hey all. My suspension components are arriving bit by bit this week. (S-Techs showed up this morning, AGXs, Progress RSB and endlinks are not far behind...) I was going through the Tein instructions this morning, and it made mention of the bump stops, and said that it might be necessary to trim them for the install. I checked out the accompanying chart, and for the '02 Sedan, it says:
Cut type = A
inches = 0.6
Cut type = A
inches = 1.6
Now, I'm assuming that this means I trim those measurements off the bumpstops. (Please correct me if I'm wrong.) Does any one know what the "cut type" refers to? There's a note on the bottom of the sheet that states, "Refer to the figures shown in the instruction manual for Cut Types." Of course, there's nothing in the manual about it...=)
Strange. You have an '02 as well? I will be installing the AGXs at the same time, so a stiffer shock will help stay clear of the bumpstops anyway, but it's still recommending to trim over an inch and a half from the back. I don't know...
Well, it's not an expensive set of springs, so i'm not out all that much if they don't work for me. I like the drop, so it's a good place to start. Since I won't ever have this car on a track or strip either, I'm not too worried.
Worse comes to worse, I'll swap springs out for a different set.
Of course, I'd rather not cut the bump-stops on this install for that reason...=)
