haha, yeh pretty much all you should have to do is take the old spring out and put the new one in...(of course there's more to it than that. you'll need spring compressors to take the stock ones off).. but what i mean is, there should be no cutting involved. there's probably one of those little dust caps/covers on top of the factory spring which you would wanna take out, but it should just come right off with the old spring. :neutral:

anyone else agree/disagree? i'm no pro, so this guy will need more opinions than mine!

Um my Ground Controls on my 7thgen went on fine with nothing being cut. Just make sure your buddy doesn't get popped in the head when he is decompressing the stock springs.

I found out what he meant. Which coil overs by Ground COntrol you must trim the stock spring seat which will then allow you to slam your car completely. If not cut the car wont drop no more than 1.0 inch. www.ground-control.com
