Rear axle bump stop

Ok this is what's happening. I have a 90 gt with 17x9 cobra Rs when driving the car bounces problem being it goes down so far that the finder is hitting the tire and cutting it. The factory bump stop not hitting rear axle. It is lowered about a 1in or 2. Does any one know if they make a bigger bump stop or a way to adjust it so that it doesn't drop that far or should I just look to go back to stock springs

I don't remember exactly how the bump stops are attached, but there should be some way to space them or extend them, but at the same time you wouldn't really want to be bouncing off them all the time.
Are your shocks ok?
Rear Coilover shock conversion is what I would recommend if you can swing it.
Then you will be able to adjust your ride height to your hearts content.

Shocks are shot. But was told that's not the issue because the bump stops should hit the axle before the tire because even with good shocks there goin to compress when you get on it and if bump stops don't stop you it still gonna hit the tire

It is an issue maybe because you do not have stock sized/width tires?
Yes, the shocks will compress, but good shocks would compress slower and possibly less than worn out ones.

Me too. I would love to have some double adjustables on all four corners, but they are so darned expensive.

Check Strange Engineering too.
Sometimes they are less expensive than other manufacturers.
