I want to lower the front of my car. I like how the car stands now, except the front is a little too high. I want it about an inch lower. Plus my bilstein shocks are preaty stiff, and I dont want it any stiffer with lowering springs. I'm having trouble finding springs just for the front though. Does anyone know where I can find some. What about front M3 springs or maybe cut my current springs.

Dont cut the springs - buy a new set - it is difficult to cut them exactly the same size

this might be getting a little off topic but while we are on springs any one lower their car with out a camber correction kit? if so did you find extreme camber wear. plus another addition did any one encounter any problems (clearance) of their car because I was thinking about Konis and Eibachs but afraid of the camber and clearance
