I need to lower the front of my car approximately 1 to 1 1/2inches. I understood from your " Question of The Week "answer, that you would cut an Inch off the spring to lower it an Inch but people are telling me that I am reading that wrong and that I would have to cut 1/2 to 3/4 of a coil to lower the car 1 Inch. Would you please confirm approximately
how much I should be cutting.
Thank you again for your assistance. – Dave
If you measure the free height of the spring, out of the vehicle, and then move around the coil until you get a measurement one Inch less I’ll bet you it will be about 1/2 to 3/4 of a coil down. – Mike.
