Thanks I still haven't decided it has falkens now and they don't hook at all even on dry pavement but they are a discontinued model too and have low tread so I may go with those again because I love the way they look

Hi. I want to modify my bullitt and your car is just great. What Did you do to make it so low. Are you running 17 or 18" rims?
Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm not Slow4V so I can't speak as to how it drives. But I'm riding on cut springs myself and have had 0 issues with them

ok good to know, i'm not in the US so it is hard for me to find parts. i have to import every single add ons for my car, cut springs might be an easy way to lower my ride. thank you for your answer.

Do they ride just as good as lowering springs when you cut them?

If it's a linear rate spring you will basically keep the same spring rate after you cut them, but it will ride a bit harsher depending on how low you go. I went from H&R Race springs to my current setup and didn't notice a difference other than the fact that in gained another inch in drop. But the H&R springs were not soft springs at all.

What Mile High said, plus you can get softer or harder lowering springs pending what you look for. I cut my springs as well, and IMO it is the best mod you can do yourself for free; as long as you take your time and be patient.
