they prevent your strut from bumping up against your shock tower, or bottoming out. if you dont cut them, depending on how low you are, you will be riding on your bump stops and this creates one hell of a nasty ride quality. it basically takes your struts out of the equation.

It also depends on your springs. When I was running H&R Sports, the instructions specifically stated not to cut the bumpstops. So check with your spring manufacturer first.

I got s-tein springs, lowered about 1.5 to 1.75". Should I cut it. It is a harsh ride.
