Hows that Kool-Aid brother? as long as its done 'smart' its not a problem. the Eibach's are a beehive design (reducing coils at top and bottom) so you need to be careful - and yes, never with a blowtorch!

Where do you go in Perth? I have been using WA Suspension for years and they have done all the suspension work on my SRT for me.

Also, cutting springs is just plain dumb and I don't understand why people do this. A spring is engineered to have a certain spring rate (compression and decompression) and load rate which is equal to its energy absorbed and released. Cutting the coils "where you think you want it to be" is not very mathematical or smart (and usually increases spring rate, which means you'll bounce more and have less control). This reduces load rating and can even weaken the metal over time. Particularly dangerous if heat was used to cut through the coil!!

Yes sir I do....BUT Im getting ready to pull them out and go with a RM setup from BlackOps.I have the Extreme set up and the mid drop. May try the mids first

Re: does this look lowered to you ??

I have standard eibachs and your fronts look like mine. Rears are more defined. Nice work.
