Cutting coils is free and effective and it only cost me $275 for new shocks and getting it realligned. two years and 22000 miles my tires have normal wear.
You neglected/ignored/forgot to state that a realignment to bend the stock beams to reduce the negative camber was required after cutting coils. Your post above made it sound like cutting coils was all that was required. Please be more thorough in your responses.

And how much wheel suspension travel remains? That's the distance btwn the top of the beams and the bump stop.
