    DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT cut your springs.

    Spend a couple of bucks, buy some neuspeed springs for it.. Dont cut your springs. Its dangerous and it'll ride like ass.

    wtf

    i honestly can not even believe you asked that , there so freaking easy to change ,
    go hit up ebay , mine are under 100 bucks for some shitty aftermarket knockoffs ...


    take the tire off ,jack it up, put the car on blocks under the frame , the lower the wheel off the jack , then go get a chiltons or hayes , there so easy to change ....


    done it quite a few times on dodge pickup in apt complex parking lots , takes one day light ,

    blaa...

    its actually free at autozone , you leave like a 25 $ deposit ... use it , then return it and get your money back .... but like most ive got a bunch of those wratchet straps just laying around .. and they do work if your stuck out ...
