If I hit a "rare" NY pothole my rear will bottom out. It is not lowered and has good travel to me.It does take a good shot too bottom out. I have multileafs w/poly bushings. I installed shocks years ago but they have no miles. They are black but I don't remember what brand. If I push the car down from the rear it is like a rock.I was thinking of shaving the bumpstops for extra room or is this a mistake? Somone told me to get old style shocks.Any advise will be great. I can take pics or measurements if necessary. Thanks. Brian.
