Re: New Redfire SEL v6 w/20"s *Pics*
Let me qualify this by saying I'm not an expert. I've seen on numerous TV shows and read in numerous websites that it's not a good idea to cut springs. Having said that, I've also seen it done on TV before. However, my understanding is that it messes up the ability of the spring to absorb the suspension load correctly. A factory spring is set with certain load capabilities depending on the cars weight, type of suspension and probably a lot of other things. If you cut the spring, you change that settings and it throws off the entire suspension. At least that's my best effort at a non-technical explanation of what I've heard and read before. One other thing, I figure if it was a good idea to just remove a spring and whack off a couple of inches, companies like Eiback, Intrax and others wouldn't be around very long. I would welcome a more techinical answer- but I think this gives you an idea.
