Dude that's gonna be low. You're gonna need more things like cc plates. One coil is pretty low

It'll drop more than that. I would cut only one coil. And put everything back. Then if it isn't low enough for you then cut more. Because you can't put a coil back on. You'll be screwed and have to buy new springs then those sprigs you buy won't be lower than your cut one coil. Then you're out $200

I already have sportlines installed, and have the stock springs laying around so I wanted to experiment and get a good stance I want, if I mess up my stock springs all I gotta do is throw my sportlines back on

Im confused becuase my sportlines lower 1.7, it's sitting to high for me so if I cut 2 coils off my stock springs I should be around 2 inch drop with my stock springs? So if I don't cut around that it'll just be higher up than before?

I would do what they say and do it in I increments. 1 coil does not necessarily = 1 inch

And you want to cut two coils off.. Two coils would be way lower than that
