Do you have a cutting wheel or hacksaw, lol.

I wouldn't worry too much. Wait a little for the car to settle and then see how it sits and decide then.

99 si springs

no because i checked twice and the front springs say front on them and the back say rear...... how will it be if i put the front springs in the rear and the rears in the front?
then the front will sit slightly lower....
