Try searching. I don't remember but I've read a ton of threads on here about cutting springs. I think it was cut 1.5 coils off the front and 1.25 off the back but look it up first.

I've cut several, just remember once you cut them you can't put it back. Ride quality generally suffers

right is a relative term....to me right is what performs for what you need. and oem springs are wonderful for most needs when cut :good: best weight transfering springs for no cash down lol

@op i've done about 10 new edges now...i always cut 1.25 coils off the front and 1 coil off the back. gets you almost a 1.5" drop in the front...pull the isolators to gain around another 1/4" drop. Ride quality gets a bit stiffer but that's perfectly fine by me. if you're curious on cutting methods check out this...it's for a cobra however it's similar to working on an sn95

True, I'm more into auto cross than drag so I was thinking more more in that area. Also I've only tlked to one person who cut their springs an I guess he didn't do it right if u have cut 10 with no prob.

Anybody cut their coil springs on a sn95?? How much did you cut? How much drop did you get? Post pics!!
I wouldn't recommend cutting your springs, it would be better to buy new springs. The ride of your car wouldn't be very good. I bought SR performance lowering springs and it made my car look real nice and drives even smoother.

Their not exactly smoother riding, but If you want it substantially lower, the H&R SS springs give a 2in drop in front and 1.6in in the back. Cutting springs compromises spring flex so i wouldn't recommend it. Get new shocks with a new springs tho because lowering springs will be tough on them. I left out the isolators as well. Another 1/4in drop. Just my .02 tho.
