I wasn't talking about the car's design, but the design of the springs themselves. The spring rate is not constant throughout the entire spring. The spring is designed so that there is a progression in spring rate along the length of the coil. Furthermore, cutting introduces the risk of bad fit. Moreover, the springs would have to be cut EXACTLY the same, or he would be driving with a sideways car. Springs are cheap. Just save up for a few months.
Also, if you put in lower springs and don't change the shocks, you will ruin your shocks. So whether you cut them (
) or put in lowering springs, you will need new shocks anyway.
