Race springs with stock dampers?? You probably answered your own question right there. Unless you damaged the strut somehow.

press down on the front of your car. Does it bounce more than usual? I think the general rule is the car should only bounce like 2 or 2.5 times before stopping...or maybe its 1.5 :blink:. I dunno how well that method will work with race springs tho.

i guess my point is that if it is much bouncier than normal than you blew a shock
