    I was going to say cut a little at a time but that would take to much work.

    You cant go by a set of lowered springs like my MRT's to measure by. Although they lowered my car 1 inch in their relaxed state they were as tall as the factory ones I took out. Its all in the tempering of the metal.

    You're an idiot if you cut you springs.

    Cut no more than 1/2 coil at a time.

    well, something like that, yes.


    really though, read up on mustang suspension and choose a lowering spring made to lower the car
