yes cut the bump stops like eibach says.
alright. how many miles is the reccomended amount to let them settle and get an alignment if i need one?

people will say both. i did what eibach suggested and cut them. when cut, they will give your dampers more travel and potentially cause damage to them. the flip side of that being you may potentially "bottom out" your dampers (bump stops hitting each other) when you hit bumps.
you really should avoid potholes, speed bumps etc at high speed when lowered anyway. hell i avoided them before i lowered...

Here is a quick pic i took of my car when i got home from it being lowered



i guess my installer said my passanger shock was blown. I dont know when it blew how it blew or that it was even blown. But i have ss shocks now. Struts too.
Ride isnt as bad as people say it is. A litle bumpy at times but you cant really tell because its not all the time
im satisfied. It stil has to settle more.
