Ray, I did some more research because of my conversation with the second guy from Energy Suspension - he brought up "adjustable bumpstops". They don't really apply to my situation, more for off-road and racing setups, but very interesting. Different densities and heights allow them to tune when the suspension starts engaging the bumpstops and how much the stop functions as a spring. You can change the timing at each wheel to compensate for torque at launch, or cornering. You can even pre-load with them. Like a lot of things, the deeper I go, the deeper it gets. There's a lot more to it than I'll ever understand.
