You could cut the stock springs, but I'd opt to put in lowering springs. Have you looked into the Viking Coilovers? They are a great budget friendly coilover and are really good quality. You would have infinite ride height ability with them.
Literally just cutting or sliding on some heater hose over the spring and removing the isolator. Not a fan of that but would like to lower the rear a bit, it's 1.25" higher than the front after I put the 9" in which looks like ****. Anyone know of an aftermarket isolator that would lower the rear? Be nice if companys that sold aftermarket rear ends would offer something like this to offset the higher perch.
