cutting ur springs

i was telling my friend how if you cut your springs your car will bounce really hard up and down withe the slightest bump. and then i got flamed by a bunch of kids who wre like. blah blah blah cutting ur spring will only lower ur car and make the ride bumpier and there's no point doing it. i thought cutting your springs make you bounce really hard up and down. am i right or wrong?


PS: if i'm right i'm gonna print out this thread and rub it in their face.

cutting ur springs is stupid it will lower ur car but is will fuck up the aligment and ur tires will bend toward the inside

and you will bounce all over the place

just wanted to point out the kids factor.. happywink
Well unless they get their facts straight and actually have something to back up their claims never listen to anyone especially a kid owned

Learning is all about reasearch, backing up claims and learning from mistakes. thumbsup

VERY BAD IDEA. I agree it will mess up you alignment and your ride will be aweful. Plus most of the time people do it wrong and it looks bad.

The purpose of a spring is to exert tension on your shocks.

The shocks absorb the impact, and the springs force the shocks to stay extended, rather than compressed.

Cutting the stock spring will only reduce the amount of force exerted on the shock to keep it extended, thus making the car go boing boing boing because there isn't enough force to keep the shock extended.


To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

you also run the risk of the spring buckling and the strut shooting through your Hood or rears. really messy and too expensive to mention (imagine your whole car slamming to the ground while in motion)
