Default Help with bumpstop!! A.s.a.p please

I am working on my car right now, I just pulled the passengers side rear shock/ spring off. I seperated the spring from the shock, and I was wondering if I should cut this bumpstop down. There is a worn out nub where my finger is pointing to...should I just chop that off? I will be running Racing beat lowering springs, which should lower the rear about 3/4". I laid the springs on the floor side by side, and the stock ones look wayyyy longer than the racing beat ones. I hope this won't be a ridiculously harsh ride.

Yes, cut them down. You need all the travel you can get with lowering springs.

Should I chop off the little nub and make the bumpstop look symetrical?

Doesn't really matter that much. Just cut off the bottom (smaller part), and be done with it.

That's what I've heard, but they have to be better than stock. I got em used for like $50 for all 4, so I'm not gonna complain...yet.
I got the rear shocks and springs done, now onto the front!
