HELP! BUMP STOP CUT FOR TEIN S TECH SPRINGS!

I'm having a lot of trouble with this part. It says I must cut the bump stop in the front with cut type A (i know what that part is), but then it says 0.6 (inc.)... does that mean I cut it 0.6 inches or 6 lines in the inch?

that is 6 tenths of a inch so cut it just a little over .5 which is a half. it does not have to be exact just close

Shit. Oh well it's too late now, I already cut the rubber stop in half.

^^ Whoa... shoulda waited b4 you did anything.. . I dont know what the ride quality is going to be like with the rubber cut in half. The worst that can happen is that your springs might pierce through..

too short a bumpstop wont hurt you unless you bottom out the car. you could then concieveably destroy your shocks.
