You need to cut one or two bumps off. You do not want to remove it all together. I have the Tein S-Type Springs and cut I off two bumps.

I have the same combo (Eibach with Tokico) and had a dealer install them. I don't know if they cut the bump stops? But a big difference in the ride, especially with Progessive rear sway. If the bumps stop are not trimmed does it cause any real problems?

The only problem you may run into is, being the car is lower, it is also closer to the bump stops. If you hit a big bump, you may hit the bump stop and it will not feel to good. Cutting them gives you a little more travel, so you don't have to worry about hitting them.

ya the suspension travel was also my concern...so i m thinking that if cuttin two stops off the bumper stop will add an extra inch of travel...that means, u woudl be back to basicaly where u started in terms of suspension travel...

I wouldn't trim more than one rib. When I swapped the Eibachs for RB, my front bump stops had like a 3mm ring sheared from the top...it was just like chillin in the boot when I dissassembled everything.
