Mounting the rear axle on top of the spring stack will lower the rear a good bit but cutting coil springs on the front will really stiffen up the ride and your front end geometry will be off and depending how much coil you cut out will dictate how bad the ride gets and how far out the geometry will be. Shorty, I left a post for ya back at the 'style'.....

Went back and reread your post . I know you understand that I have to try everywhere . I understand what your saying , and I agree . However there's got to be away to achieve this without going to an expensive route .
