^I really didn't want to cut more because I'm getting to the point in the spring where the coils start spreading, and although I could probably cut a bit more safely, I would like to leave it where it is as it sits almost flat now. Also, if I can avoid limiting straps that'd be great, as I would like to be able to swap springs quickly if I ever need to tow or haul a heavy load (stock spring payload is nearly double these ones, plus I cut these so it's even lower). With straps I would need tools to unbolt the straps, not that big of a deal, but without them I can literally swap springs with a jack and 10-20 minutes.

So you think maybe the shocks would be raising it a bit? I'm going to unbolt them sometime to see if it lowers it anymore, and if it does then I can order some shorter or adjustable shocks maybe. When I cut the springs it dropped about 7/8". I wanted a total of like 1.5". It does look much better sometimes, but other times I can't even tell a difference (I think it depends on how it's sitting, like on a hill or what...).
