Recently, I just installed ground control coilovers with koni adjustable shocks. The problem is that my rear is bouncing out of control. The front is perfectly fine when it goes over potholes or bumps. All the settings are all at firmest setting. Do you think it might be the bumpstops that i installed on the rear shocks that is causing the problem?

Did you trim the bumpstops before you installed them? I had to cut my bumpstops when I installed my coilovers because the rear suspension didn't have anymore travel because the bumpstops were too high. Maybe your car is bouncing out of control because the bumpstops are too high and they are stopping the springs from performing as they should??

setting your shocks to its firmest setting is bad for daily driving... especially if the roads you drive on have a lot of potholes; also did you buy ground controls that were made to match with your konis?

I dont have any bumpstops installed on any of my shocks but i know it bottoms out when i go over the potholes. The rear suspension is still squeeking as i go over the bumps. yeah i bought the koni and gc set for 50 dollars off my friend. the gc is made to fit the konis.
