Finally i got it!
got an extra inch of lowness!!
thanks for all your input guys



and yes i recomend cuting it off ur car!
take out ur lower arm and strut together
and cut about 3/4 off the cup leaving enough of the cup
there so ur sleve fits down into it still
p.s never can use stock springs again after you cut this!
