my gt has 92xxx miles on it stock springs with adjustable shocks and struts just wondering will it be ok to cut the stock springs? will it harm the ride quality? or should i just buy some bbk or eibach springs?
i cut a coil and a half or quarter (can't remember which) on my 00 gt in front to bring it down, didn't notice a much worse ride than the eibach's i had. it was slammed. i ended up swapping back in the eibach's and getting rid of the isolators.
There's a couple of threads on this. Conclusion: It is not ok to cut them, it will greatly affect your ride quality and steering but you can do it. if anything do it, ride it while you save up for aftermarket ones. But go aftermarket If you can, when you can, as soon as you can.
alot of ppl have cutted there springs and have had no prob when ride quality,other have hated cutted springs.i have had cutted springs, ford c springs and now cjpony prokit......i hated the cutted springs .like the ride of the c springs but love the stance of my prokit.....so if you cut your springs and your not happy with them than buy you a set of aftermarket springs
Another thing, yeah you're car does look a tad bit lowered. And I saw in another post that you have "blue springs." So chances are that they are aftermarket after all. You might be able to get away with cutting them if they are linear springs. Still, try not to cut more than 1 coil
I'm almost positive your car has already been lowered. How much lower do you want it? I'd get in there and try and figure out what springs you've got so you know how much drop you have, and then your options are new springs, or take out the isolators if you still have them, that would drop you a bit more.
Does the car have CC plates? You will probably want/need those if you go any lower.
Slamming the car will have a deleterious effect on the handling and ride quality. If you have aftermarket springs already and your car looks like it was lowered 1.5 or 2 inches, any lower and you'll hate the handling and the fact that you bottom out on every bump. Maybe I just don't get appearance mods...
