E36 bumpstops, both front and rear?

Thinking about doing springs, probably Swifts.

My question is, do people install the E36 bump stops just at the front, or at the rear too?

Many thanks!!

And then take out spring pads in the rear right? And just wrap the coils?

I don't know... I just read it somewhere that's why I want to know too.

I think the bottom portion of the rear coils would be wrapped in a plastic wire wrap to act as the thinner spring pad

The rears don't need to be wrapped on anything. The stock pad is enough
