The "Comfort" shocks supposedly come with the bump stop as well as the dust cover, however the "HD" shocks do not. The 123, 126, 107, and 124 cars all use the same bump stop up front. When installing the HD's, you have to reuse the dust cover from the old shock and purchase the bump stop separately.

The bump stop is extremely important. It's all that really limits lower suspension travel. Without it, it's very possible to whack the oil pan on the pavement, even with new shocks if the speed and gradient change is right.
