Help with suspention/ weird sounds

Got a new coil overs a while back and its not working out so far wondering if i should just got back to stock and worry about them after college or if there is a way to "fix em". Heres whats going on....


I Got a 2013 Gt and before i left for college i gotthe Eibach mutli pro R1 coil over kit ( Eibach Mustang Multi-Pro R1 Coil Over Kit 35125.712 (11-14 GT, V6) - Free Shipping ) . The performance was great and it gave my car a great look but i rode a little rough but i didn't pay much attention to it. i would also hit the bump stops when i hit holes or any rough spots in the road but it was not enough to be worried, when i moved to my college however, the town has very rough and spotty roads (opposite of a track). now the car rides very bad and i hit the bump stops all the time. I was wondering if there are any settings in the coil overs that could help improve the ride quality, right now the coils are maxed out on lowering which means i'm pretty sure its (lowered 2.7 in the back and 2.3 inches in the front) and the dampening/compression is tuned all the way to the minus side. If anyone could help me out with this that would be great as i'm not good with coils, and i fear damage could set in over time.

Also i am getting a lot of noises , in the back right tire a hear a chattering/clanking/clattering metal noises when i go over any kind of bump or sometimes When i am just driving. I also hear squeaking a lot while driving normal speeds. And the worst noise is when i turn sometimes (backwards or forwards) i hear a grinding vibration like noise coming from the back but i'm not exactly sure where. i figure these problems are tied into my coil overs because i never had these problems with the stock car parts. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

As for the bump stops just trim them a little shorter. Maybe adjust your dampening setting so it isn't just set all the way down too... And avoid ****ty areas of the road? Not much way around it Coilovers more than likely always are going to have a harsher ride that's just part of the game.

Just an update on the clanking noise when I go over the speed bump. The dealer has confirmed that the control arms need to be replaced, thank goodness the warranty covers it.
