my friend cut his springs on his 540... it gave him the SLAMMED look but it rode like absolute sh!t... in the end he got coilovers since the ride sucked so much. might as well save ur money and get something decent :)

ive always wondered why ppl say dont do it...?

because all the coils in a spring works as a unit (progressive springs). notice at the top of a spring, the coils are more spread from each other than at the bottom. so, cutting a coil or more out can damage the spring rate.
