      So who's still got them in?

      Wondering if I should take them out. I'm pretty sure they are holding my rear up.

      Want to know if people have had any negative effects taking them out ( i.e. premature wear...)

      Halved them.

      Mine are still in, sort of... they are cut flush with the bottom edge of the upper mount.

      Mine are cut almost completely. I just left there a bit to hold the dust cover. They are not limiting the drop.

      I cut mine flush with the mount (without taking the tires off BTW) but I think now I'm going to see if I can go without them completely depending if my e level sensors can handle the lowness
