Default So I cut my bumpstops, was this enough?

So i finally cut my bumpstops after the shop that put my springs in didn't cut them. I removed 22mm-24mm This sound right?

most people say to only cut up to the first notch, but you went a littler further. I dont think its enough to make a difference, but im not sure.

You're only supposed to cut off one hump from the bottom. That way you still keep the progressive rate that the stop has built into it.
