adjusting bumpstops?

I want to shorten my bump stops because I'm getting metalcloak highline fenders and I want more flex. They is a block In the middle I think I can remove. How do I adjust my bumpstops. Or can I even to it. I saw jks makes them but I really don't want to buy them if I don't need too. Also shoud I just leave it. What do you guys think?

adjust the bumpstop spacer is easy:

I prefer spring pad mounted bumpstops in front to avoid damaging/bending the bumpstop tower & threaded section. drill and tap the spring perch and bolt them down.

like this:

here's how you determine how much bumpstop length you need:

you need to pull the spring out and remove the spacer on the bump stop.

We went a little custom with my dad's right because his bump stop mounts were rotted away. set of SAW air bumps and mounts welded up. took a little work but they work great.
