Default Bump stop question...

For those that know suspension setups better than I

Currently I'm running 35" BFGs but I will be dropping down to 33" MT/Rs in the near future. My front bump stops are 2", 3.5" overall with the bracket. By dropping down to 33" tires should I therefore increase or decrease my bump stop length? In my frazzled brain it makes sense that with a reduction in tire size I should decrease my overall bump stop length by about an inch or so, assuming I won't bottom out the shocks.

I ask because my PS bump stop is pretty well shot and needs to be replaced. I was just going to get the same size but then I started wondering...

TIA
