Lowering . . . Bump Stops?

So I'm droppin' 'er down on Koni specials and B+G springs that I acquired from Cole. Upon tackling this project I ran into one set-back. Bumpstops. When I disassembled my OEM strut, all that was left of the bumpstop was dust.

Do I have to replace these with OEM or should/can I use something else. The stealership wants like $30 a piece for those bitches and I'm sure I'll need all 4.

Any advice?

So if I'm only using 2 of the OEM one, which 2? They're like cone shaped, so they don't cut in half (symmetrically speaking). But I think it will work out well if I cut the 2 rear ones in half, cuz they're kind of long. I'm going with that.

Anyone want to buy 2 brand new OEM Front Bumpstops? $25 each + shipping + paypal. I payed $32 each + tax.
