Would not work, particiularly on the rear ones where the upper and lower sections of spring are wound on a smaller radius.

not sure i would want to do that you may upset the whole car if you get it wrong and the springs are made in a way to fit as they are not modded in any way.

i would just go down the buy some lowwerd ones road much safer and less hassle. :)

But it's not really relevant anymore. I'll just look for a set of lowered springs  :y

Hey look, I got promoted :)
