Okay, here is my story. I've got an extended cab R/T. I dropped it 4/4 with a Western kit and love it, but I only had about 3/4 of an inch clearance in the front. It was 2" drop springs with 2" drop c-arms. Definitely didn't cut it for North Dakota roads. At any rate I installed the stock springs again and it went up an inch like I expected but it's too much. I want to go down about a half inch in the front. How much of the coil should I cut off to do so? And are you looking at the coil from the top when you say this? So half a coil would be about 180 degrees off of the top coil right? Sorry this is such newb stuff but my truck looks like crap now and I don't even want to drive it until it get lowered again in the front.
