The bump stops are designed as part of your suspension system,
so if you have the comp springs, you WANT to cut the stops! Sharp's
mods are pretty accepted, so I think you're doing the right thing.
Sharp didn't beat his cars to death unnecessarily...
However, if you have a softer (i.e. stock) spring, you need all that
bump-stopping that the stock shape provides. Remember the cool graphs
that Chris Coker put up? The change in spring rate is caused by the
bump stops. They really act as a progressively stiffer spring! And
they just look like little lumps of rubber...
