I am interested in lowering my car and I'm trying to avoid the 250 bucks that comes with it. A friend of mine told me I can take it to a shop to have my stock springs shortened in height by cutting them. I was wondering if this was at all possible, would I sacrifice performance or will it improve, how much should something like this cost, and would you guys recommend it or not?

Ford Racing, hmmm. What's a C-spring? How much will it lower it? Got a link to where I can find them online? I wanna here more opinions of people who've cut theirs or had someone they know cut their springs? Have any of you heard of that?

I remember hearing alot of ppl talking about cutting springs a year or two back. Don't know much about it. Maybe someone will get a break from Ivan and post sometime...

:confused:
Why does everyone here put it in so many ways. Let the cat outta the bag and just spit it out. It's really hard to understand what you really mean when you're typing. Me being Mexican doesn't help...I don't understand the inside joke thing that you guys go on with. If you're gonna say something say it right!

Ok. I cut my springs, I have a post about somewhere in this section.

Here's the link:

http://www.mustangevolution.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7381

How did it turn out is probably the relevant question. Well, I cut one coil from the front and 1 and a half coils from the rear. Next time I'd probably keep the front the same but cut only 3/4 of a coil from the rear. I occasionally bottom out in the rear now.

It dropped the car about 2" and made it level. I aligned it no problem and I did not need caster/camber plates.

It handles much better than before and I have no problems whatsoever with it. I have put probably 5000 miles on it since the drop.
