I wouldn't cut springs, I'd do it right. And i would never never cut stock springs. They are not progressive like most aftermarkets.

Thanks! Yeah I wanted the OEM gray ones. But I cant ever find them for cheap. So I might pick up a stock set and mess around with painting them, while not having to worry about not having headlights on my car. lol

Black SVT housings, 100 bucks on ebay. And they came with up graded wiring so I can run 100/90w bulbs and not melt the wires.

Cutting certain springs is okay.

H&R Race Springs:


You could cut 7 coils off those springs and it wouldn't affect how the springs handle at all. 7 of those coils are dead coils, fully compressed against each other, so they won't affect the spring rate if you remove them since they don't move at all during suspension comression.

I love those! Do you have a link? Or were you just lucky and found one set?
