Has Anyone Ever...

cut their stock springs? I'm looking to slam it, and i would probably end up cutting/heating aftermarket springs anyway to get the ride height I want. A friend of mine heated his springs on his civic and the ride is uncomfortable as hell but it looks amazing.

Don't cut the stock springs. if anything if you want to go that route cut a coil off on the aftermarket springs. Or just buy springs and call it a day and have an semi comfortable ride

^^lool. I'm planning on cutting the front of my B&G's if they don't settle anymore, but only a little bit, in order to equal out the ride height. I don't find the ride that much more uncomfortable...but I like the stiff suspension feeling (everyone's different) we'll see if it gets much worse after I cut my fronts a bit.

I cut my stock springs... Bad idea man. It rode like trash, made my back hurt and stuff, it sucked pretty hard. And besides that its really unsafe, I have a friend who cut his and one popped out when he went over railroad tracks. It popped his tire and dented his car. It cost him way more than if he just bought real springs. If you wanna go lower than most companies offer (2F 2.5R) just get coilovers, it'll ride great and you can ajust em... Just my 2 cents.

2006 LS coupe, tint, 18'' DR9 wheels, Eibach Sportlines, 12'' rockford sub w/600w rockford comp amp, alarm and so much more to come.

Spend the money and do it right, just buy the springs and also save yourself half the labor of removing the springs twice.
