Stopping Shock Movement

My rear tires are rubbing when I go through a dip on the road. I don't want to roll my fenders so my friend said he stopped his shock movement just before where it hits his tire. I was wondering does any shop do this? I have the rubber I need to put to stop the shock moving but don't have the tools to do it myself.

Sorry but that's stupid.

Your loosing your suspension travel when you do that. thus when it hits those "bump stops" all that force is transferred straight to the frame.

you're better off:

a) raising the car
b) increasing camber
c) using a stiffer suspension
d) rolling your fenders
e) or all of the above

well it wont be stopping the shock movement completely. the shock will have travel for about 90% but the 10% i want it stop before it hits the tire

rolling your fenders will be cheaper in the long run....

rolling fenders = 80 bux a side max!......labour costs for dismount of shocks etc... is aprox 80-90/hr....
And thats not factoring in extra parts costs and delays from rusted/siezed bolts etc...

Take some time and rethink ur ideology...
