    Springs used to be one size from top to bottom, now they are shaped in more of an O shape so if you cut the spring at its edges it won t locate correctly.

    Sorry mate but does any one else smell that?? Allot of my mates run stock cars and every one is running cut springs at high speeds and cornering, no issues other that the rear popping out when the kirbs hit hard. But that's also due to poor suspetion design In a corsa on the rear lol
