Nope. Just use a hack saw and do it by hand. As for changing them, as part of the install the susp is disassembled, you do it then and re-install trimmed stops back onto shocks where they were originally (inside dust boots).

I have always used the tapered/progressive end, and trim 1" off of the harder/firmer end. This is for the rear if using your old OEM stops. In front you should use new stops off e36 M3 and do not trim.

This will all make more sense once you see them.
