no, no, yes.

As a guide I only use as much weight in iron as the bumper (if I've got heavier bumper available) You can get away with loading up the plates, but eventually, depending on how good the bumpers are, you'll where out the sleeve of the bumper. The bar should be able to take quite a bit of weight being dropped without getting bent.
