if your front starts bumping out at all, cut em.
they are at the top of your strut, under the accordion sleeve. they just pull straight down.

I've had my springs on for a while now and never need to cut my bump stops at all, and I've gone over some pretty hard bumps on accident, but I also drive my car likes it's made of glass.

ive heard a lot of people say they didnt cut em.
i cut mine because thats what the spring manufacturer suggested.
btw, i drive my car like its made of glass too!
which is ironic since i do custom glass for a "living"
