You cut your springs? That's smart. Springs aren't expensive unless you buy a big name brand. You can get knockoffs that are $100 and are probably safer than cutting your springs.

Yep they're cut. I've had 3 cars w/ cut springs, no problems. Kits dont put me low enough, & I had a kit on a scion tC before, I can tell no difference between a kit & cut springs.... but that's me. I dont race or anything like that....There are alot of cars around here w/ cut springs. SURE its not the safest thing seeing as how they wernt designed to be that way... but its not something i plan on leaving alone either...I really want to bag the car...

Yeah...bag as in airride suspension...sorry...lol
they're CUT because I wanted the car LOW... I dont do it for performance, I do it for looks. I'm into minitrucks, lowriders...that stuff. That's fine if ya'll dont understand or w/e, lol. B/c there are some things that Ive seen done to a cobalt that I just dont understand either, but to each they're own, right? But I'm not the only car w/ cut springs...I'm not even the only cobalt w/ cut springs... so...

lobalt is not the only one who has done it but, cutting your springs is unsafe, and i wouldnt recommend anyone do it!
I agree... as soon as I can afford it, im changing, b/c havin cut springs really doesnt last a long time... But for now, it works...


I have an 92 toyota oickup with air ride. Sold it a month ago. Its was bodydroped. If you look in my sig. you can see the reflection of it in my car... I miss it
HA, yeah I do see it... from what I can tell it looks flippin sexy, haha

One thing I'm curious, how does airride ride compared to coilovers? Why not get coilovers? They'll take you pretty low...you can only go so low on a Cobalt anyway.

It's not like you can do this:

Kidding, I have no idea what the Cobalt's are capable of...especially if you're willing to C-notch the frame or do other things to get it lower like this Rabbit.

IMO that is ugly. Too low to do anything.

I've got sportlines on my stock struts and shocks with no problem so far. I love them!
