    My hood has aways had a little flop to it but has gotten worse and was boucing pretty good today on the highway in a wind storm. I've read before about people raising the bumpstops up to get a tighter fit. Just wanted to verify that this is the way i should go about it.

    I was one of the posters in the other threads you probably read. I raised my bumpstops a few years ago, and have not had a problem since. It works great, and that is why they are there (to adjust for any looseness).

    Just Do It!

    Yes, they are adjustable. Screw them in or out, (no jokes here please).....That's what she said...HaHA It's easy, try to make the hood tight against the core support. It should close with a drop from about a foot or so, if it doesnt then they are too high, back them off a bit and repeat the process until you are happy with the results.

    I noticed this last weekend during a long drive and when I stopped to fill up the tank I opened the hood and adjusted the bump stops. It seemed to improve it.
