What is the cutting bump stops when installing lowering springs situation? I see some springs come with shorter bump stops and some do not. Do we know if left Un cut how close stock bump stops would be to hitting under load?

No replys in a while. Any info on this? I am leaning towards cutting the bump stops to the length that Tein and Eibach offer their aftermarket solution to...looks like about 1/3 cut off.

Do the springs come with instructions, most tell you how much or where to cut if needed

That's the problem. Eibach and Tein come with shorter bumpstops, Swift and H & R do not. They all lower about the same. Hoping someone has measured how much travel there is on a lowered Supra from static to stock bumpstops.

I would just shorten the bump stop by about the same amount as the drop the coils will give

I cut one donut (round circle) off each of the bump stops when changing to lowering springs. Cut the rounded end - not the flat surfaces side.

See below:
