No need to cut anything off/out. And yes you can reuse the old dust boot.

You do have to cut the bump stop it's in the directions 1.6" (C cut type) . If your onld strut boots are old just get new ones , I got mine for $28 off of ebay.

I didn't have any directions with mine. I followed a How-To and it didn't say to cut anything.

I accidentally forgot to put the bumpstops back in with the teins... <_< oops... but I remembered when I redid the progress! haha!

as for the ride well they were pretty soft when cruising but going hard in a corner you could definitely tell they were stiff!

If I need to cut something that would be great to know before I purchase mine.
