Lowering My Scort

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.
No NO NO NO NO!!!!!

Do not cut or heat your springs!!!!!

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.
Thanks for the input guys, I knew it would be risky looks like I´ll dish out the dough also whats the lowest I can go with 15s?
