i am going to be starting to restore my 70' chevellle in about a month or two and i am planning on what i want done. i want to lower it about 1 inch. i dont want it to look like a low rider, but to have a lower stance. here's the problem. i dont have an unlimited supply of the great american greenback (money). i heard somewhere that you can cut the springs in the front to lower the front. is this really a good idea. if so, how many coils must be cut off to lower the car 1 inch. the car is a 2 door malibu, w/air and weighs about 3411 lbs.
