Looks great! What brand and type of springs are those? Have you had a chance to drive it? Did it affect the ride much? I've thought about cutting a little off my H&R race springs.

What you do it cut off coils ( the twist in the spring ) to reach your desired height of the car.. Usually 1 coil is a 1.5in drop if i correct

Ok I understand. So a whole "revolution" = 1 coil

And if I wanted to drop 1.50 total (bcuz that seems like the norm) just take off 1 and a 1/2 coils from the top.

I took about 1.75 coils in the front an 1.50 coils in the back of my old V6 to give it a small rake, i actually if i could go back would take a little less off

The fender well right above the tire you have the body panel if you feel a stock wheel well right at the edge it should feel square and flat.. Rollin it pushes the square flat edge up inside the fender well an against the back side of the body panel to allow for lower cars not to cut tires going down the road hitting bumps
