Only a complete idiot would cut the springs to lower the car. What's the point of sawing the springs down when you can easily get your hands on a set of springs specifically made to lower your car safely? They're not exactly expensive, and unlike sawn down springs they won't cause your car to fail it's MOT. If you really want to lower the car be prepared to put your hand in your wallet and fork out for a set of lowering springs so that you can do the job properly. At the end of the day the car has to be safe so that your life's not in danger - or anybody else's life, for that matter - plus if you have an accident in the car and the insurance find out that you've fitted it with sawn down springs your policy will be invalid. Not only that but you'll be leaving yourself exposed from a legal standpoint, as anybody making a claim against you could claim that you were driving an unsafe vehicle, which could easily pave the way for a prosecution.nathplummer said:Im thinking about lowering my Mk2 mondy, my mate suggested cutting the original springs?
