Question springs

was wanting to know if the S197 has progressive springs, or can they be cut to lower the car on the cheap?

Re: springs

when I helped my friend take out his the front did not look progressive at all, but the rear may have been.

Re: springs

It's been a while since I changed my front struts, so i really dont remember, but I dont believe that they were progressive...I am going to be changing out the springs in the next few weeks or so, so I can let you know then if you'd like...

Also, I am not an advocate for "cutting" springs...Plenty of people do it and have no problems, but I guess that just seems liek a lot of work and its just "too permanent" for me...For around $200 for the cost of a set of springs, its just as easy to me to swap them out and if you dont like them, put the stock ones back on...
