with my personal experience with cutting springs you never cut a half coil cause its alot. i usually get the right ride height with a 1/4 cut of a coil.

if you have a small block or a big block with aluminum heads a small block spring will be perfect. if its a iron headed big block u big block springs and just cut a 1/8 th of a spring out and it should be good.

i think you should just get new springs and shocks and install them as is, if you think its a little too high then cut out a 1/8 of a coil at a time, cutting coils changes the spring rate so you want as much coil as you can get.
