Suspension help

I scraped my roush front valence because i went over a hill to fast and the front went down but the wheels went up causing my front to barely scrap on a road. What can i change out to make my car not do that?

Stiff springs and stiff compression/rebound settings on your shocks

It depends. Stiffening up the shock will help, but then the springs won't be moving at all. You want a set up to where both the springs and the shocks will work together.

Remember though, if you go over the same bump at the same speed with the stiffer springs and struts it will jerk the hell out of the car upward. That travel the wheels take softens up the ride, so the less travel there is the stiffer and stiffer it will be. Believe me, i have pretty stiff coilovers in my car, at least for street use.
