Cutting front springs - centering?

Post #1 by powerband » Tue Nov 15, 2016 9:01 am

What happens when the front spring is cut down and the bottom coil 'turnout' that sits in the perch is cut off?. I've not seen a mention of what happens to the spring position without the 'turnout'.

thanks

Not sure if it makes any difference in fit or not but if it dose then you could just make the cut of the coil on the top of the spring instead for that safety and leave the bottom of the spring alone. Good luck :nod:
