    I haven't but the ride and performance will only get worse. The only good thing to come of cutting stock springs is how the car looks when its standing still. Save for some Ford C-srings.

    Lol, I asked the same question. It would make your car look better, and It might make it handle better because of the lower center of gravity. But I think the low CG will only make it ride less worse if that makes any sense.

    Don't ever cut your stock springs.

    Save your money and buy some good springs that will give you the drop you want without cutting them.

    If you do want to cut some, buy some Csprings and do it.

    I cut my stock springs for a 2.5 inch drop. I paired it with Jamex shocks and struts and the ride was actually not that bad. Nevertheless, the ride wasnt good either. It was bouncy and very stiff. If you want less than a 2 inch drop, just get lowering springs.
