if it's too low for your preference you can always add back in the rubber ISO's...:yes
My car is perfect stance now, I got spacers but i need bigger tires on my back. I have 16 inch rims that came with that I didn't really think were that bad looking, and lowering my car I love it with the 16 inchers and alot of tire.
Pictures soon and ill try to find the drop height

could a dremel work? :D
it might, but im sure it would take quite a while lol.

and from what ive heard it is best not to heat up the springs while cutting and a dremel will probably do that based on how long it will take for one of those little cut off wheels to get through the spring.

Ive heard the same thing about how its bad to heat up the spring. I definitely wouldnt be wanting to do that...

But i read somewhere that while the dremel itself might get hot, the dremel wont have enough power/ torque to heat up the actual spring...

I dont know if thats right though.

While an angle grinder would be ideal for this project, im just trying to be ****ing MacGyver and find something at my house that would work lol (plus i dont want to spend money... hahahah)

yea yea yea, hahah.

unless you havent already noticed, im a cheap bastard.

anyway, besides the grinder, what other tools could possibly accomplish this job without compromising the integrity of the spring?
