The reality is that shortened shock rods are fine when it is lowered. Best way will be to machine it down and thread tap. The effect of dampening and rebound doesn't change at all. All race shock absorbers are basically short rods.
I apologize for the confusion about cutting the springs, I had it backwards. It is okay to cut linear springs, not the progressive. I had linear springs.
However I am done discussing this because I went with different route.
Thank the lord.
I'm glad that, while it looks terrible, it is not also a hazard to other motorists.
