It would to a degree, but going over the same bump at the same speed, expect the same results or maybe worse with a softer stop. Now your frame is hitting the stop...with a softer stop you may be hitting axle to frame sooner. You have 3 1/2 inches of travel before your axle hits your frame rail. I would think your suspension is capable of more travel than that. I'm not trying to be a critic and offend but 3 1/2 inches, less 2 inches for the stop equals 1 1/2 inches...not much movement before impact. You could try going to a "non urethane" stop, they are softer but, I don't think it's going to give you a fix for your problem. It will still bottom out, in fact I believe sooner with a possibility of doing damage.
