I have to rebush my car and thinking about lowering the car at that time; some questions?
I have a 1981 with tube bumpers.
Does anyone know if stock springs are progressive?
Does it matter whether you cut off the top of spring or the bottom?
It sounds like everyone is cutting off the top, is there a reason?
if the springs are progressive, I would think a need to cut equally from top and bottom
Suspension related stuff goes in here.

I'm pretty sure the original springs aren't progressive. They sure didn't look like it when I had mine out. Lots of threads here on cutting them, with the biggest issues being harsher ride and possibly having them pop off their mounts under full suspension travel. I didn't cut mine, but wish I had splurged for new ones when I rebuilt my suspension. If you're in there, I would also look at the condition of your rubber spring seats. Mine are like rocks and I wish I replaced those too.
