I was thinking of cutting my front coils, but thought I would check other alternatives. I found this at O'Reilley's and thought I would see if anyone used them?

I am currently using them on the front of my car.

They are pretty useless. Had them on the rear and removed them and cut the spring instead. If you do get them, get longer bolts so you can actually lower it.

Good to know...thanks! Also, did you have them slip around the spring at all? I've read that they might work their way around the spring and cause it to get off kilter?

I'll second that motion, used to work for Oreillys as a manager, they suck for sure. Definitely listen to "utahsleeper" he's right on the money.
