Eibach says so on the instructions first off.
and yes, you will be hitting the bump stops every time you hit something. I was doing it.
Even had a GM mechanic tell me to cut them.

very controversial topic.

Read the instructions and see if it says too.

Cutting the bumpstops won't do nothing on lowering. I believe you should cut them with any lowering springs. The ssc springs are like the ca #1 springs I had. You should deff cut them. Unless you like them bottoming out constantly. Some people say that your struts will mess up quicker if you cut them but I see it like this. Even when your car is parked your lowering springs are compressing beyond stock. So it doesn't matter. Your struts shox will need replcing e eventually. Now some people that have springs have said they gone 20,000 miles and no problems. I'm gonna change mine to fe5 suspension soon

Yeah they'll settle a lil, probably like 0.2 inches or so but looks good bro, definitely a great upgrade!
