This is what it will sit like with 2 coils cut. It will ride rough and tires WILL rub. This car came this way. I just put stock springs back in and noticed Im gonna need new inner fenders because tire rub has burnt holes in them.



My suggestion would be the Eibach Sport Kit or the cheaper version would be FRPP Super Sports.
