Default bump stops??

Can someone please tell me where the front bump stops are located?
I looked until I was cross-eyed and still couldn't find any.
Thanks, Phil

I did a fast check in a couple of sites and nobody talked about bump stops on the front. After I installed my Eibachs, and asked questions, noone said anything to me about front bump stops and I only trimmed the rears.

I was a little confused when I lowered the car and couldn't locate any. I had looked on and they had installation instructions for Goldline springs. Their instructions stated that the front and rears were both supposed to be trimed. Beats the heck outa me.

Looking at the photos in the Haynes Repair Manual, I don't see any bump stops on the front end. The stops on the back are very visible in the photo on the outside of the springs.

On the front strut the orange-ish rubber thing on the strut rod serves as the bumb stop. You can see it when you remove the dust cover.
