Lowering for $40?!

Hey guys and gals... As I was having my car washed and cared for, one of the young gentlemen suggested I take my car to this place nearby that lowers your car for $40?! He says he's got his and his friends cars done from there. Isn't that absolutely ridiculous? I looked at him like he was nuts, but of course, thanked him (cuz he polished all my wheels free for me) but damn... his car must bounce like crazy. Don't they just cut your current springs?

Gee, you think I should go get my car lowered for $40?!
LOL

Ummm, lemme think about this one....

NOPE



If it's that cheap, something is not right. These types of things are not cheap when done right. It surely doesn't sound like it's worth it to me.

Probably cut a coil or two, or heat them. Heating them is bad, and cutting coils is too if you do it wrong.

yea this is prolly one of a few things if he isnt just lookin for an excuse to talk to ya

they compress the springs with brackets or a big rubber band, they cut them, or heat them

none of these are what u want to do, they make ur ride horrible and tear up your suspension in the long run so itll just get worse
