Installed rev 9 hyper 2 Coilovers and when I hit a bump hard enough my front end sounds like it bottomed out and hit a frame or something, raising it seems to help, any tips on how to minimize this? I heard adjusting preload helps

You are likely hitting your upper control arms on the shock towers. How low did you go? Adding preload will actually make the problem worse at a certain point. It's going to take alot of trial and error to find a ride height/amount of preload that works for your setup without banging UCAs on shock towers.

For reference: my car at this height bangs shock towers more than I'd like. I'm going to end up raising it a tad and maybe even removing a bit of preload.

figured, I went pretty low not super low but dumb question can I just “get used” to the sound?
