I have experience with cut springs on our cars and it is not the nightmare most have heard it to be. If done right its not bad, but for the cost of springs (100-300) I would suggest getting em. However you have already cut so check your tie rods, balljoints etc since your already messing around in there. Camber bolts or plates should be your next biggest priority bar none. You don't want to end up having to buy tires if you don't need to.

As for the person who made the comment about cut springs giving a harsh ride, I bet you the title to my car you couldn't tell the difference between when i cut the springs and factory. There was ZERO difference from stock other than ride height. Lowering springs did stiffen thing up a bit, but that's what they were supposed to do.

He cut them, so no sense in trying to convince him not to. I'm not a big fan of "oh I heard this" experience, nothing beats knowing first hand. Good day!

Maybe he cut too much, or let the springs heat up. He messed something up, I experienced no such thing.

See at the bottom the coils are very close together.
When I get the $1,500 together I'll upgrade to a fully adjustable coil over kit.

+10,000 I feel no ride diference, mabey a little stiffer, but that's fine, makes it feel more sporty. I'm glad I cut my springs, no regrets.
