because stiffness is a must for people who actually do work. because cut springs is a billion times more dangerous than a coilover will ever be. because coilovers have adjustability available. ride quality is not an issue. all the other things are.

with cut springs, you still have the same damper travel. Which means if somehow you hit a bump or something that causes you to get a good amount of suspension travel, your springs wouldnt have any compression on them, causing them to be able to move around freely. This means that they can move off of their perch and fuck up your shock and possibly car when the damper goes back under compression.

The only thing that changes is the height of the spring

Holy old thread, but I was curious what kind of suspension set ups people are running. I realllllly want to slam my car more but I think my Tein basics are about as low as they go. I want big time slammage and some wicked camber and I want to see pics of other people's stuff. Any takers? How low can you go? boink

absolutely false.

spring rate increases when you cut coils off.
