i am in the process of installing tein re's in my supra and i noticed that the front coilover only has about 1.25" of travel when you factor in the bumpstop.
im just wondering if this is normal for re's? i know it has a stiff spring rate so it wouldnt compress much anyways but that seems really short

Assuming you've lowered it somewhat, that sounds about right. There isn't much available travel there to begin with before the front tire hits the top of the fender liner, and lowering it uses up some of it.

talked to tein and they said it's normal to be like that. they said i could trim the bumpstops for more travel
Don't trim the bumpstop, you'll bottom the tire into the fender. Depending on the tire size, you may actually need more front bumpstop, not less.

im not sure if you have handled re's or not but they have an extremly high spring rate, dampening rate and very little travel. if i bottom these out then i would be having other problems besides my tires hitting the fender.

the max travel i have now would be 2" i have much more than 2" till my tire hits the inner fender or otherwise.
I haven't run REs, but I have run 1000lbs. springs and still bottomed the tire into the fender with bumpstops that were too short.
