Guys ask about how many coils to cut to lower their cars. A couple years ago I lowered the front end of my '55 Chevy probably an inch or more. It cost less than $10, only an hour or two, and was reversible. How? I used stainless steel hose clamps to clamp the coils together. I clamped one coil or should I say one full circle, maybe just a little more. As I remember I was only able to clamp the spring (s) together maybe 5/8 if an inch but that lowered the front end noticeably and it fit my purpose nicely. I only used two clamps per side. I did use a couple extra clamps to help pull them down though, as I remember.
