I have a set of '96 Metro springs sitting here now. I will use a cutoff wheel to clip them to whatever length I figure it will need. How do I bend the cutoff end to flatten it out for the spring seat so it rests like the stock spring???<br><br>Thanks,<br>Mike<br><!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://www.we0h.us/WE0H_Motorsports">WE0H Motorsports</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--> <p></p><i></i>

I just let it rest in the spring cup that way. A suspension book says that it should be heated with a torch and bent flat to match. I don't know if trust this advice too much. <p>Proud owner 2000 Metro poor mans special edition, 1984 Suzuki SJ410 poor mans rockcrawler (needs turbo 1L), 1992 Ford Aerostar Cargo van(The big white piggy, needs more dents and scars), 1964 POS Baja VW (needs to be put back together).</p><i></i>
