I know some spring makers do no advise cutting bump stops, but if you are lowered, cut bump stops make for a smoother ride. My sedan was .25" lower after the bump stops were cut, so it was riding on them with only a 1.5" drop.

Stock front bump stop:


Twist and pull apart:


Rubber bump stop with dust boot removed:


Cut through 2nd valley from top with a hacksaw:


Short stop :)


Trim bottom close to valley, leaving just enough to hold the dust boot:


Use spray lube and twist/push back into dust boot (use less lube than I did, it splatters):


Finished bump stop:


Thanks to my wife for taking pics.
