simple spring clamps lower your car 3 n a half inches n you dont even need to sacrifice your whole paycheck so you can go down to white castles n show off but youll need an alignment.

Great way to answer the question incorrectly! :thumbsup:


He said in-expensive WITHOUT SACRIFICING QUALITY :twak:

Spring clamps are not quality. Sorry.




What kind of car is it?

i think it depends on how broad your horizon is on "the cheapest way" ..........lowering springs would probally the way you want, this way you still have the same ride, but lower. If you want to go real cheap you could heat up a few turns on the coils with a torch, but then you'll get a more bumpy ride..........lol........ it all depends on how cheap you want to spend, and how much safety and a good ride you want.

do not heat the springs.........

it will weaken them...and they will never stop "settling"


i would cut them that is the honest to god cheapest way..but then again if you want quality go with lowering springs.....it will ride better than if you cut them....

But it doesn't matter what kind of car it is :twak: Spring clamps still suck.

He probably cut his coils, ended up too low and bottomed out a bunch of times. Then he probably put in some new ''stock'' springs and it probably now sits high like a truck. :biggrin: :biggrin:
