It looks like mine is as low as yours, but my wheel gap looks like shit because of my gay ass wheel/tire combo.

Plus I need a Mach lip lol

Car looks sick btw

Ok so does anyone know from experience how much drop I should expect by cutting my springs?

Eibach pro kit, thinking 1/4 coil? Don't wanna cut too much at once and not be able to add it back.

Has anyone cut their pro kit springs or just stockers?

I'm dropped 1.75" on Vogtlands w/o iso's , springs are rated at 1.6" drop . Not sure if the Eibach's are progressive or linear rate but i don't think it's recommended to cut a progressive rate spring .

They are progressive.

But in my mind, cutting progressive rate springs means you would just be in the stiffer spring sooner no?

That would be my thinking also , you essentially lose some or all of the progressive rate depending on how much you cut .

I'm thinking a 1/4 coil should probably drop like 1/2"? Maybe I dunno...

Yeah anywhere between a quarter coil and half a coil will yield a .5 inch drop. Also, leave the isos in.

Ok so it just took me 58 mins on the dot to jack the car up, pull the wheels, calipers, disks, unbolt the struts, unbolt the sway bar ends, pull the springs, cut them, debur them, paint cold galvanizing compound on the bare steel, and reinstall everything, no ISO's. Here's where I now sit after a quick test drive to seat the springs...


Thinking about leaving the rear...

Looks better. But next time, don't take off the brake disks to do a spring job.
