Hey is it possible to shave a coil or two off my stock springs to lower it a little. Has anyone done this and does anyone know any cons to doing this???

I´ve done that before with OTHER vehicles, but you just cant do it on a secondgen scort, it all depends on the way the ends of springs were made, and you´ll just wind up with a bunch of junk, or at least a dangerous suspension. gotta buy some that are made to fit. sorry.

i dissagree, i took a link out of each of my springs, on my escort, and it actually seems to ride much better. it i verry eassy, and of course possible. but only do it if you know what you are doing.

Escort springs are weak enough as it is.
Taking a revolution out of the spring will weaken it even more and increase
your chance of snapping the coil.
Trust me, I work on these cars all day long.
