you also could have heated up the springs with your car on a hoist........then drop it to its desired level.........and then let the springs cool again!......not a recommendation, but i've heard it done!

it could lead to sagging, crap ride, or mess up the rest of your suspension components. if you are a professional or had them cut by a professional then you should be alright. the spring rate could be unbalanced as well... but heating them up and compressing them is probably the worst that could be done...


like i said though, it looks awsome!!!
