for the rear you do NOT want to cut off the pig tail for the bottom as that is how they sit on the lower control arm so dont mess that part of the spring up.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe springs become progressively stiffer from top to bottom. You definitely don't want to cut out the stiff part on a spring.
