Default Cutting coil springs to lower front

Hello friends,
I want to lower my 2012 Tradesman 4wd a couple inches all the way around. Cutting the front coil springs has been mentioned. My question - when you cut the spring, you take away the flat part of the spring where it sits in its cradle. Also, what did you use to cut the spring?
What is put on the spring and/or cradle so the cut spring sits flat in the cradle???? Maybe someone has a pic of a spring that they cut??
Thanks people!!

DON'T DO IT !!! doing that ruins the spring rate and the ride quality will suffer. Buy lowering springs if they make them for a 4x4 and depending how low you want to go make sure you check your shocks for the right amount of travel. Make sure you get an alignment afterwards. I'm not sure but you may need an adjustable track bar also depending how low you go.
