So she is now level... but...

It seems like the JBA UCA's are bottoming out. I know I read it somewhere that people have had this issue in the past. Question is, what is the fix? Did cutting the lower part of the hole where the UCA is fix it? Did leaving it alone cause any damage? Can't imagine this is a good thing. I didn't have these problems before I adjusted the front end higher, does this mean I need to lower it back to where it was?

By bottoming out are you saying they or the ball joint come in contact with the strut on full drop?

There were guys on the WK side having the same problem. They had to re-prototype, for lack of a better word, and rebuild the UCA. JBA that is.

Lifting too high does the same thing, springs hitting the UCAs
