    I am not sure if to consider this a rant or what. I does see so many cars that dropped lower than standard height that bounce like crazy on the roads. Man travelling at 30-40km/h in an Almera and the whole car shaking in a smooth road like it have nerves yes.

    It is a rel weird thing to look at but then I does wonder, a lower car means a lower gravity center, does that mean better cornering and handling when it bouncing around like a big ball?

    I know some padnas that have cut off just one coil on the spring and had a very good ride afterwards. No bouncing around.

    That sounds like the "proper" way to cut the spring then lol.

    I once read online that it actually has benefits to be reaped from cutting one spring. They backed up the statement with pretty good explanations and analysis. I will try to find the link again.

    I do believe that once you interfere with the original thing there would be a difference. I had a ck lancer once, the back was lower than the front for whatever reason. Guessed it was the amount of music in my trunk. Anyway, took off a coil from each of the front. To everyone else, there was no difference. To me it was there. I then took off my 18's, slapped back on some 16's to add a little meat on the bone and walla. Better than before. Lol. The extreme cut spring seems a bit too much for me but if a boy got the patience to drive it n change bushings I got no issues. Only when they in front of me and having to show down every minute. I look to blow my horn n pass them asap.
    If we talking cutting spring, keep in mind we ruin the ride just as when we put on the big rims. We all do it but talk about the other. So to each his own I would say.
    I love to see a nice drop low with some monster rims. Wouldn't do that on mine caz I go way to fast on our not so nice roads.
    Big up to the fancy up ride fellers. Maybe when I could afford another car.

    Naz I respect what you saying. I agree with that, on most cars the big wheels does kill the ride quality too but not as bad depending on how much bigger we talking.

    I does have a problem when they wanna pull on my side to take a hump, I does get vex for that cause some of them rel bold with it.
