How do I remove the bumpstops from a gen 1 brat?They look to have a 3" nut holding them on.I am installing EA81 rear suspension so the bump stops are in the way and would just be another thing in the fenders to rub on,so I would like to cut them out and put them where the ea81 suspension needs bumpstops.I was planning on using my torch to cut the bumpstop mounts off but I don want to burn up the (good condition) rubber bumpstops..Any Idea how to remove them short of getting a HUGE wrench?

well universal bump stops are 8.99 at autozone. So I guess I will torch out the mounts,and if the bump stops catch on fire I will just get some universal ones.I love it when I set things on fire in my garage...
