Koni STR.T struts; use stock bump stops?

Helping a friend install Koni STR.T (orange) struts/shocks and H&R sport springs on his '04 325Ci w/ sport pkg this weekend. Do the Konis have internal bump stops or do we just use the stock bump stops? Only reason I ask is because I have Bilstein HDs on my M3 and I know the front struts have internal bump stops, wasn't sure if Konis were built the same way. If we just need to re-use the stock bump stops, do we need to cut them down at all? I have seen a couple of people say they had to trim their bumps stops when they installed lowering springs. Any help is appreciated.

Reuse your stock OE bump stops if they're in good shape, if not, buy new OE bump stops & use them.

EDIT: When in doubt,.....Call Koni USA.


Good luck,

I used the stock bumper stops, no need to cut them. Springs are H&R Sport Springs.
