Don't understand why people are replacing bump stops with struts. You can move your factory ones to the new struts.

They will work, but need to be cut if you are on lowering springs.

I realize that. But if your buying replacement oem bump stops, your going to have to cut them too. As seen in post 3, makes no since.

+1 on replacing with only OEM boots. The rubber tends to turn into a 'pile of rings' at the base of the strut as time goes by.
