Besides, I only want to go 2 inches more in the front and rear but I cannot find anyone who will sell individual coils. I may have to cut them but unsure on how too and if it's safe or not.
Hi Matt,

Yeah, a little lower would be nice, but like you, I really don't want to do the lowering job all over again.

I've lowered a few vehicles by replacing coil springs with custom-cut units, but I've never cut a coil spring.

My last lowering job was on my '67 Chevy C-10. Four inches in front and six inches in rear. I also had to cut the frame rails and install a custom notch kit so the rear axle assembly wouldn't strike the frame.
