2” front drop bottoming out

On my 2014 R/T I have 2” drop shackles, QA1 adjustable shocks with about 1/2 coil trimmed off my front springs. I also have lowered the bump stop level. The front tires are rubbing on some road dips. Any ideas on how to stiffen the front end?

I do it cuz I can!

Drop coils will have the stock spring rate, Cutting the front stock coils decrees the coil rate, which is why it's bottoming out., you not going to be able to get the spring rate up with shocks. Coil spring spacer will get back some of the lost rate, but it's not a good permanent fix.

Timbren springs. They look like bump stops and act like springs.The only sure cure I know of. Makes one believe in magic.
