Im sure if you could stiffen your suspension it would decrease the bounce.

no, stiffer suspension wont help much, aftermarket shocks are the go unless you want to get the stockies revalved (not allways possible/feasible)

Unless you went to ultralows? But im not sure on the legality of these, nor the difference in height

Once you cut springs, your car won't handle as King intended as they set them to a partilcular 'rate' as Frank said.. For the moment, look for damn mighty hard shocks.

go and find some springs that give you the hieght you want with out having to cut them. tehn go and get some shocks that are matched to the rate of the springs.







cut springs......shakes head and walks away

i'll refer my above post

and add this little bit.

cut springs are not legal for a reason.
there are dangerous.
your car will not handle or stop properly


one day you kill some one and you will have no insurence at all once your car is inspected (yes that happens when you have a crash) and you will face huge fines and have to live the rest of you llife knowing you killed some because you're a tight a***.


go and get some f**k lower springs and get you mobile death machine off the road. god help you if you hit some one i know. on second thought god don't help them just let me rip s**t through them
