You have a pic of how low your car is by chance? It might not be your setup bottoming out but actually your control arm hitting your inside fender wall. Might need to trim your control arm a little.

questions:
1) How old are the Tokico HP dampers?
2) How low do you have the dropzone springs?

most likely, the HP dampers are not strong enough for the extra low dropzone springs. The Eibach Sportline springs should do wonders.

yeah the Tokico HP dampers won't be able to handle that drop.

the Tokico recommends using HP's on mild springs like Tein H-Tech, Eibach Sportline and such.

Sportlines are like 2"-2.25" drop. ive seen a cb in person with them on. there as low as dropzones.

if your going to go with a drop, go with neuspeed or h&r, because the maximum drop on them is 1.7" which is the best combo with Tokicos.

The Tokico HP spring perch is about .5in lower than stock, so that will lower the ride height.

In order of increasing aggressiveness:

Tein
H-Tech 1.5in 224 lbs/in (F) 1.1in 151 lbs/in (R) - Great with sway bars and strong shocks Tokico HP. My setup.

Sprint Performance 1.50 (F) 1.50 (R)

Neuspeed Sportline 1.75 (F) & 1.5 (R)

Eibach Sportline 1.8 (F) & 1.7 (R) Part# 4.1140

in this picture the car is lowered on Kybs/Sportlines. They're the same as my dropzones.

victork may have said something they shouldn't have...
i have had this problem before, most likely it is your upper control arm. you should check that out.
