Those universal coilovers are designed to be used with the spring perch cut off.

If done right they can be decent setup, a member on the .org has a great cheap coilover set up using ebay coilovers.

This. If you install them well, and you use the right spring rates, then it's not a problem, and they will work great.

Chris was just one of the guys I was talking about. There's another guy who had an entire thread dedicated to his coilovers.

Heating the springs isnt that bad. The dude i sold my ACR to, heated the springs, it still drove fine.. handled fine.. He lowered it about 1.25 to 1.5".
Ba thing is that it'll kill your struts.

Personally, I wouldn't cut or heat mine. If you're that desperate, I would heat them before I'd cut them. Its easier to get all 4 even by using a yardstick or tape measurer and watching the car drop. Just remember, your messing with you're springrate whether you cut or heat, and your struts will not last long. I'd save $100 and just buy a set of used k sports or even eibach sportlines. Or you can get brand new ones for just a bit more.
