People with low stance/harsh setup please chime in

I'm running pretty aggressive setup of H&R and billies sports on 4 corners and starting to notice when I go over bumpy road even minor I can feel every bump on all the wheels.

Also, when I hit a any sort of hole or a medium bump my front wheel will make a pretty heavy thud.

Is this normal with a such setup? 245/45/17.

I have bad rear mounts but not sure if it's related.

new rsm's make a hell of a difference. just did mine and it was night and day. also, 40-45 sidewall is not ultra thin but will definitely have a difference in feel from a 50-55 sidewall

i am running the bilstein pss9 kit and notice exactly what you are describing, despite having new strut mounts and new reinforced rears (3-4k on all).
I think it is normal, but i am slightly concerned about crowning the front strut towers after enough abuse.

That isn't an aggressive setup. That's pretty your best and avoid the potholes.
