Lowering Springs and LT's

Who has long tubes and is pretty low? I currently have eibach prokit but was thinking of going lower with the H&R super sport springs but thought I may have way to many problems with scraping I live in Houston and there is a lot of POS roads plus a lot of speed bumps lol

I'm pretty low, but I cut my stock springs. I've got Mac LT's and a prochamber midpipe and I'll scrap if I don't take a speed bump at an angle. But in your case, if you buy the H&R's and don't like em, hold onto the Eibach's and swap em back in.

How did you cut the springs? Or did you take em to a shop? I'm thinking of lowering my pony but I'm kinda broke lol

I did it myself. I used an angle grinder and cut 1/4 to 1/2 a coil off at a time. Its a little bit of trial an error, but if you have a free day its worth it. Just remember, its easier to have to cut more off, than to put it back on. Take your time, and never ever use heat on these springs. If you're good mechanically, you could do it yourself, but becareful. If you have any doubt, take it somewhere, or spend the money on springs. And remember these were stock springs, I wouldn't cut aftermarket ones.

You can look at the pics of both my cars. I've cut the springs on both of them. My new edge is perfect, alittle stiffer than stock and my car handles on rails. The fox springs are a little softer than the sn95 springs, so its got alittle more roll, but not much.
