Pfadt lowering springs install, bumpstops cut?

Anyone install Pfadt lowering springs and not cut the bumpstops? Just curious because Ive read some guys think it's a bad idea to cut them and I just want to weigh it both ways and see how it rides uncut. Guys a pfadt insist it's fine, but just checkin.
Thanks.

Not cutting the bump stops won't hurt anything and will not effect the ride quality most of the time. The only time cutting or not cutting the bump stop comes into play is when you encounter something that causes you to bottom out and hit (or not if you do cut them) the bump stops. You can always go back and do it later if you find that you are bottoming out often but if the roads in your area are ok it shouldn't be an issue.

I have Hotchkis which dont require cutting the stops, but yes on most roads it is never a problem. Only time is when your on a really bad road with "mountain" size bumps.

If you didn't cut them, then later wanted to it would suck to have to pull all the struts out
