E36M3/Z4M Bump Stops

I am having doubts about my coil over install. My FK's came with their own front bump stops, but none in rear. I used Z4M in the back, and I think back is good as it could be.

Front, is a different story. All though I am only 5mm lower than stock Sports height, right is really choppy up front. Although I changed the dampening on included Koni shocks, I feel like I don't have enough travel.

I looked under while car was on the ground, on the wheels, and front FK bump stops are already has no movement room it looks like (2nd image below). May be they are progressive and meant to be like that? I need the best ride I can take...

Please give me any input, I can use whatever I can take....

I can't speak of there bumpstops, but I used the bumpstops that are used with bmws performance suspension for the 1series so I had more room for travel since the stock ones are rather big.

I am doubting that E36M3 ones would fit inside those narrow wound coils...
