If thats not got ramifications for safety, then i dunno what has.
The facts remain, chopping springs alters their rate and their seated pressure which alters the dampers ability to control them properly due to mismatch.
In effect, cutting springs is tantamount to suggesting that the engineers who designed them, tested them, improved them and produced them are fools who dont know their job.

Others can do what they like with consequences on their own heads, im going to do it right with a kit designed to do the job.
Absolutely agree.
