Thanks, I didn't want to spend the hundreds of dollars just to lose an inch or so, not that it's a bad deal. Now that I have an extra set of RT springs I think I'll cut them and if I screw it up I still have the stock ones.

Yeah you will have no problem with sitting properly once cut. Like someone stated above once you put the cut spring back into place theres a good bit that sits flat and once the weight of the truck is set back down it will compress the spring to make it even more flush. I have had mine cut for goin on a 5 months no problems and theres alot of other guys on different forums that have done the same thing with no problems.

I just had mine cut today, really simple, did one and a quarter cut, then another 1/4 and it's pretty much level, maybe a 1/2" rake. I'll be posting up pics once I take some tomorrow.
