    if you use heat, like a torch, to cut them, they'll be useless. you will have to cold cut them. hacksaw type of thing. if you do this, no more than 1/2 a coil. ride will suffer some.

    either do the rubber hose mod in the rear or get new springs all around..dont cut the stock ones. It will change your spring rate and your shocks that are already shit if they're stock will be that much worse.
