Alright guys, im ganna cut my springs and install my camber plates, so should I cut my sportlines or my stock springs? I'm leaning more to cutting the stock springs incase I don't like the way it looks ican go back to my sportlines

stock....NEVER cut progressive springs like the sport lines. your oem springs are linear so they are perfectly ok to cut. might i suggest 1.25 coils off the front and 1 coil off the back no isolators. always my favorite stance for a cut new edge

2 coils all four corners..you may wanna leave iso's in until after you see how it sits. if you want it lower pull them out for another 1/4"

surprisingly pretty much..however age of the springs also changes that because they can lose tension over time. you may do 1.5 coils off all 4 corners first to see. never hurts to be careful
