is it possible to do this? Is it smart or stupid to do? I just thought I might try it since I have no $$$$
absolutly....99.se.ltd said:what's stupid (yes, STUPID), is to cut your springs, or buy aftermarket springs...and keep the stock struts.
since he doesn't even have enough money to buy springs, i know he doesn't want to buy struts.
A secret? Now that just sounds silly... why bothering posting it then... ??PatScottAKA99XE said:One more thing..
Thats why I am saving my hard earned cash for a set of shortend strut/ externally adjustible coilovers. I dont want to tease you here but.. The set-up I am getting is one that most of you have never heard of, is really nice, and very affordable. The reason I wont tell you now is not because I want my mods to be a secret, but I dont want to be responsible for suggesting a set-up that doesnt even fit untill I know for sure( 99.99% sure right now, I just need to get them and see if they bolt in). I am willing to take the risk of blowing my money on it for you all. If it works or not I will let you know. That way you can enjoy my find or avoid my mistake.
I can't imagine not having Eibach ERS springs in the right rate or length. Not a single racer i knows cuts there springs!PatScottAKA99XE said:Mike as for the riceboy statement, I know a lot of guys with REAL race cars that cut them, not guys like us with street/race cars. Picture this... You need a spring for your race car, but you can not find a company that make one with the correct rate and length for your set-up. You do however find a company that makes all the rates you can ever ask for, but they are all too long. Guess what.. By doing a little math you can pick a softer one, cut it to your specified length and whala.. You now have the proper lenght and rate for your set-up. [/B]
