Hi,

I'm in the process of installing Tokico HP (non adjustable) shocks and springs on my '78 280z. The instructions from Tokico mention that the bump stops should be cut in order to accomodate the lower ride height. Is there a guideline for cutting the bump stops? How much is too much and how little is too little to cut? Which end should I cut off?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I read the same thing and ignored it. Haven't had a problem yet.

I installed same Tokico package in my '71 240Z. I assumed the mfg'er new what they were talking about and shortened the Energy Suspension bump stops (purchased separately) from 1.750 inch length to 1.375 inch. No problems since installation.

Installed the same setup on my '77 with KYB combo boots/bumpstops...no cutting and no problems. I used C/V joint straps to hold the bottom of the boots in place and ATF for cooling the inserts(less than 1 qt. for all 4).
