If you cut your spings you will ruin them and probobly have the Ricer bounce. Especially if you cut them with a torch, you will change the spring rate.
Dont be cheap, buy a set of aftermarket springs that are designed for your intended use. Hotchkis is what i prefer since they are designed based on performance and handling. Eibach springs are designed based on show cars, not ride quality, which explains the price difference.
