Default PSS9 Question

I was adjusting the ride height on my PSS9's and my buddy asked if they have bump stops. He said if they don't have bump stops they will bottom and break the valves. He also said that you can order them with shortened shocks??? The reason for all of his questions was because I was lowering the front end because it sits higher than the rear. These are my first set of coilovers so I'm a bit of a noob.

The stock shocks have a semi-hard rubber "doughnut" that sits at the top of the shock. I believe that's there to keep the shocks from actually bottoming at full travel.

PSS-9's have internal bump stops.

You can lower the car up to 1.5" below OEM ride height but you'll run into a bump steer issue if its too low (as well as running out of suspension travel).

Thanks Steve. I know some guys on here are running really low with the PSS9's and I like it low but I want it to be set up correctly. BTW what is up with the adjustment on the PSS9's? There is no mark to set your adjustment number. I guess you just turn all of them equally???
