I have been wondering about this for awhile. Since the stock springs are a linear rate spring and not progressive, would cutting them make a car ride rougher? I am talking if you was to only lower it by 1 1/2 or so. I could see if someone was to cut a set of progeressive springs where the ride would become harsh. But then again that would depend on which end of the spring that you cut off, I guess it could get softer.Robinson said:the ride will be harsh to say the least.
