Re: Lowering XF, cut springs or buy lowerd ones
dont do it, dont cut them very dangerous and very annoying, my mate has a sprinter that his cut the springs (2coils off) and it might look good but it rides like a fat bitch having her last ****, excuse the french but it isnt a pretty sight. too bumpy and bouncy, especially with standard shocks. you can do the rears easily, fronts you need spring comressors, you might want to save a little bit more and get some decent shocks for the back easier to change springs by taking out the shocks too, and then it will handle a bit better, remember if your lowering your car you need short stroke shocks.
