  • Cut Coil?

    What does this mean and how do I do it?

    "The front has been cut 1/2 dead coil. "

    A dead coil is when a coil lays compressed on-top of one another. You cut/remove the inactive coils so that it will lower the car some.


    Disclaimer: Remember, I know absolutely nothing, but it doesn't prevent me from having an opinion or suggestion. :

      Is that not what ricers do? Is that not bad for the car to chop the springs?

        Only cutting active coils changes the spring properties. Any spring that is collapsed onto another when uncompressed does nothing but add height to the spring.
