How does it feels? I heard that when you cut the springs, the ride feels like a toad, very jumpy ride.

And did you cut it yourself?

i cut my h&r springs so they were progressive springs and my shocks are brand new, so my ride is not bad at all. My shop here did all my work (i am a salesman at an accesory shop in miami)

3.5 and 3.8 inches?...wow, that's insane. You doin' okay with your ride shorty? We've had some heat before discussing other topics. Even with my 1.5" drop with the H&R's the alignment was way out of wack. The alignment diagram i got from my shop is on cardomain.com It shows before and after photos: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/351327/20

Basically pink means bad, and blue means good. There was tons of pink. Even after a camber kit the alignment isn't exactly to specs. 3.5 would definitely wear out your tires big time. H&R's also weren't meant for such an extreme drop. Careful you dont' bottom out...especially with those stock struts/shocks you have. Just trying to watch out for your safety and that car of yours.
