DO NOT CUT THE SPRINGS!!!! You will regret it and then kick yourself. Don't do it, JUST to get the look of a slammed car. Better to save up for a set of megans or something like that. You will thank everyone for telling you to go the cheaper coilover route.

LS400 parts are worth something or else these cars wouldnt still be here.
