    This will seem like a ricer question but that alright because it's for my g/f car. She has a 93 SI hatch. She wants to get rid of the ugly wheel gap but does not want to be springs or any set-up right now. Remeber, She 's a girl and perforamnce really isn't a first to her. She just wants to look good. I have a second set of springs for that car. How much should i cut off to give it a lower stance without killing strut travel. Anybody have instructions. I dont know how to cut springs and im actuallly think its dumb but it's what she wants.
