alright thanks, I went a head and got my cutting torch out and put wood blocks under the front cross member so that there was about 1 3/4 inches between the cross member and wood and heated the bottom coil on either side until it rested on the wood and let it cool, I figured if I ruined it I could always just buy them and do it the right way but it worked amazing it lowered me 1 3/4 inches perfectly, no difference in the ride doesn’t bottom out... just have to be careful now over them damn speed bumps [img]smile.gif[/img] ... but I thought I would just share just incase someone else wanted to lower there car and they could start with this... just my 2 cents
