This isn't a Chevy so that's really, really bad advice.

Cutting coils may lower the front end but at the expense of negative camber, increased tire wear, and crummy handling.

Read above.

Before cutting coils, determine how much suspension travel remains. The way to do that is to measure the distance btwn the I-beam and the bump stop.

Not very much, right? I figure between 2.0 and 2.75 inches, right?
