Re: Drop front end 1/2 inch
Most of the first coil is flattened, plus it seats in the A arm or top mount in a similar shaped spring seat. So the first coil or portions of it cut off doesn't do a lot, maybe nothing until you reach a full coil and the end can drop down into the spring pocket again. at that point, it drops a half inch or so, which is 1" at the wheels. The second coil loses the diameter of the coil, plus the gap between the coils, which is probably twice the first coil loss.
