Retard. Put the stock suspension back on before you kill someone. Cutting progressive rate springs isnt just a bad idea, it is a HUGE no-no. You just destroyed one of the most important systems on your car.

BC Racing coil-overs are the best for price, quality, and being low.

i bought my cavalier with cut springs front and rear and those were the first things to go, they blew out the struts and the front springs actualy ate the mounts, the springs formed around the mounts and ate them. there is a right way to do things and then theres this way, go back a step and get yourself some new springs. it might be slammed now but this will come back to haunt you

1: look in the correct forum. You should not even have to ask this question.

2: park your car until you remove those springs, and don't even bother trying to justify your mistake. You can *get away* with cutting the rear springs in our cars, but cutting the front will always end up bad. It's just a matter of time. The springs are a very specific shape, and cutting them prohibits them from properly seating on the perch and the upper mount. They will eventually slip out of place and cause an accident. How long and how bad is just a matter of luck.

3: if you disregard 1 and/or 2, throw your tools away and don't ever work on a car again.
