i was going to cut my springs instead of buying lowering springs my buddys both have cut springs on there civic and rsx so i was wondering if anyone has cut theres on there focus i have a zx3 so let me know
well i was just wondering if anyone has i understand sometimes its not possible to even cut the springs but some times there is a rubber cushion that allows the spring when cut to sorta sit even still but ill just save up for the eibach kit i think it is ? thanks alot for caring and yeah i really dont want to hack up the focus i just thought maybe it would ride alrigt still lol[welcome] Welcome to FF !!
The first question is why do you want to cut the springs?
Before I go any further, this is an important question, but your response is even MORE important.
WRONG! never heat the springs! this will do catastrophic damage! this changes the entire springs load and temper. cutting the springs is FINE. chip foose does it all the time to high end cars. so did boyd coddington and so have i. as long as you cut them 1/2" coil at the time and do it with a band saw or sawzall etc and not a tortch. DO NOT HEAT THEM! the colder the better. i have more experience with suspension than anyone that has posted so far i guarantee it. ive bagged and dragged trucks and slammed cars and trucks. ive heated and cut springs before and ive also done alot of homework on suspension. cutting down a coil is ok to an extent. just do it right.dont cut if anything heat the springs and compress one layer at a time....if you cut your springs arent going to seat right and it will be bumpie as shit...
X2, Do NOT Heat the Springs, very bad idea and very unsafe. Honestly try to find a decently used SVT Suspension and be happy with that or buy the eibach kit as stated.
