Why have you regretted chopping your springs? How much did you chop them? I'm asking you this because I'm considering doing this to my ride.

There is nothing wrong with cutting springs if you do it correctly........I have a 66 Impala that I cut 1 1/2 coils out of the front. It lowered the car two inches. Rides great and I was able to re-align the front end with no problems.....

Actually if there is a problem if it has a variable spring rate... While you may be able to get away with it if you do something like say a camaro or a mustang and cut a full coil or so off you are cutting off a good portion of the spring that is actually stiff.. At least this is what I have been told by anyone I have seen who has cut their own camaro or mustang springs. Then again they all could be dumb..

I'm just saying research it farther. Now I'll collect my post point :p
