    Hindi rin.

    Cutting springs is NEVER a good idea. Compressing them to get a lower ride height is just as bad.

    Invest in proper lowering springs. Parang awa mo na sa kotse at sa mga pasahero mo.

    Yes it is possible to cut springs so as long as you do it methodically like weighing the springs and not base it on estimates on the physical appearance of the coil. Also, you can't use a torch like what happened here because the extreme heat will weaken the metal especially at the remaining end where the cut took place.

    I once saw a torched set and the front set snapped after mounting

    i guess doable, but not that easy as it seems. the only reason the ones i know who did theirs is the limited spring options, the huge gap on the wheel well, and they wanted more than 1.5" drop. thanks to the thread, now i remember again the urge to drop mine with h and r's .

    Cutting your stock springs is a short cut to destroying your car's suspension.

    Don't believe me? ... go ahead ... its your money.

    pag pinutol mo springs mo, wag mo na lang itakbo yung auto, i display mo na lang. iparada mo na lang sa harap ng bahay para di masira yung shocks at ibang suspension parts. pag ginamit mo, ipon ka agd ng pera pambili ulit ng suspension parts.

    Here sir, read this guideline for lowering your car. The suspension you save may be your own
