Lower my mustang

I'm wanting to lower my mustang. Is it possible to just cut my stock suspension coils down? Is this expensive?

Yes you can cut you're stock springs. If you have the tools it's preety easy

Yes I've heard it's a little rougher and you'll scrape but it looks good!:p

A few people on here said they love it and have zero problems. But I know a few buddies who have done it to other cars and the ride is a little bouncy and more rough. Still cheaper than buying springs and if you dont like it you can just buy springs instead

the best cut to me is 1.25 coils off the front and 1 coil off the back...no isolators...to me you get to keep a decent ride with this cut and look great. here's my old stangs cut that way.
