yes, notch it . if you don't want to cut completely through the frame or do any welding, then the simple bolt on "c" notch should do the trick. something like this....

Is it bagged? With a 3 inch block and taking out 2 leafs, I wonder if it can still support the weight of the truck unless it has bags. If thats the case putting in a notch would just drop it more until something else hits.

mine held pretty well when I took out 2 leafs and had it lowered on 4" blox. Although, through time, the leafs started to loose their strength, but I'm bagged now so I pretty much don't worry about that, just if they can keep my axel from jiggling all over the place like hell or not.

cut the whole bump stop and anything related to it all the way off. (dont do any damage to the frame or axle of course. all you really need is a square of rubber on the bottom of your frame.
