i hear stories of people replacing the rubber ends where the springs meet the chassis (and diff on rear), for something alot thinner.
but i wouldn't recommend it.
have you got the speed-boat effect happening?

There is no decent way of doing it.. don't cut the springs. You'll have to get new ones and sell the ones you have already.

Idiot.

Id say there isnt a good way, maybe add a V8 to the engine bay, or some form of heavy mod. Depends what springs you have like lows, superlows, super super (ultra) lows.
As i think all springs are the same price, so they should be able to just swap springs around?

Yeah you could get your springs reset... heated up and all that... but it might be cheaper to just buy new springs.. I mean it's only $90/pair for king superlows.
