Cutting Mach springs

Ok so I know the mach is already lowered a 1/2 in. over the regular gt and all I can find is stuff for regular gts how much would I have to cut off to lower it another inch I dnt wanna go to low since the roads in pa suck and I would like to still get in my driveway.

If the roads and driveway are that bad why lower anymore than already lowered?? Might ruin the chin spoiler.

Nevermind i checked out your pix. Doesnt look low at all. Drop no more than an inch for good clearance and i wouldn't recommend cutting springs, buddy of mine did and the ride was horrible.

Haha I guess I must live in pa. Here in tn I bought my cobra already lowered and when I went up the road it always hung the bottom. Of course don't think there's as many Amish in tn as there are in pa.
