I would call anyone that thought chopping springs was a good idea a pikey.

Why go to all the stress of taking all your struts to bits just to do a botch job.

Have a bit of patience and do it properly.

It will drive like a bitch on cut springs,cut springs tend to tramline because they dont sit in the cups properly once they've been cut,if your adamant that you are going to cut them make sure you plastic tie them to the strut so they dont come out if you lift off somewhere!! Failing that ive got a set of lowered springs you can have for 20!! Smile
