I said "or strut" which is obviously what your talking about. How is cutting a inch off going to let it still travel the same distance? That doesn't make sense to me, and personally I wouldn't do it. Cut springs and cut shocks and struts are not the proper way to lower a car. I'm not saying it can't be done but it is not the right way. The ride and handling can suffer, but to each there own.

I'm currently on Progress springs and SVT dampeners and they can barely handle the streets of Houston. I don't even know how our other members even get around and they are slammed.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
