There are ways to cut springs with minimal heat intrusion into the rest of the metal. To go the exact opposite way, well, surprises me.To add to what you said: heat destroys what makes a spring springy. So doing that ruins the springs in more ways than one. Plus it becomes a safety hazard because it can break.
If hes a national hot rod shop, he should know that, and know its one of the worst and least safe way to lower a car.
Because Im 22 and I know that.
The 1.6" Vogtlands need a bit of a cut with stock weight distribution just to be level. They are "tail draggers" out of the box.I hate to make an assumption, but I'd also hate to put the car together and have it be "nose up". Switching to aluminum heads, fiberglass hood and trunk relocation of battery will reduce the front end weight a bit, maybe 100# or so. Would I be wise to take a 1/2 of my 1.6" vogtlands right away?
I'd like a tiny bit of rake.
Is that using MN12 rear LCAs or FN10 rear LCAs? If LCAs don't matter, then what about if using poly isolators which give the rear end a little bit of a bump in height?The 1.6" Vogtlands need a bit of a cut with stock weight distribution just to be level. They are "tail draggers" out of the box.
