I assume that the picture up top is the car we are talking about? How much has the car been lowered and how much travel do you have in your suspension. If it's been dropped a lot and little room for travel, bump stops aren't going to readily solve the problem. When a car is lowered and not enough room allowed for the suspension to travel it's got few options but to hit somewhere on the frame. A softer bump stop may soften the blow somewhat but it's still going to hit the frame and with a softer stop, it will hit the frame sooner.
