You're welcome.

The bumpstops I'm using are the ones that come part of the Bilstein Sports. The front struts have the internal bumpstops that reside inside the strut body.

With just 5/8 inch suspension travel (from resting height to first contact with bumpstop), I think the OEM rubber strut bearings become even more important because it offers a second rubber bumpstop. I think a set of solid bearing camber plates would greatly amplify the impacts into the strut tower when the suspension bottoms out.
