Now that the question has been fully answered, I'll ask a semi-off-topic question:


How far off the ground is the front crossmember when the stock-length struts bottom?


How far off the ground is it when the shortened struts bottom?


I can't help but think that shortening the struts only lets the chassis hit the ground when bottomed. Is this mod for folks running tires more than 23" in diameter?

These questions could be answered by doing a suspension mock up without springs in place. Just install everything but the springs and cycle the suspension. You'll get everything except ride height numbers. Ride height is abviously easiest adjusted with coilovers. Coilover conversions are cheap now days.

If only going 2"-3" of drop, don't mind a small amount of work, have a hacksaw or angle grinder and an assortment or wrenches, you can lower you car's front end and make it adjustable, stiffen the damper (shock) and increase the spring rate (stiffen) the stock spring for under $50. Cheap is a relative term and spending hundreds of dollars on something you adjust once to get the ride height you want and then is simply along for the ride seems a waste.
