The bump stops are there to prevent your axle from bottoming out on your shocks or to keep your tires from hitting your body !

you can take them out but then you may find your blowing out the shock mounts -or your tires are rubbing your body !

So play with it to see how far up you can compress with the bump stops out and your shocks disconected -then determin the right shock that will allow enough compression and extension !

if they were quick connects there should be a pin in them
if there aint and it is bolted top and bottom maybe they are just longer then stock ones to compinsate for the lift
