The most of you guys seems to have perfect smooth safety roads out there, because you don't live in Russia ;-) That's why you may be interested in lowering your car. It will not only make a car looks perfectly hot and beautiful, but more stable and pleasant to drive too (however it's a doubtful statement for some of you).
There may be two ways - a right one or a wrong one. So, I decided to take a quick look at the lowering your car with popular methods except compressor-way, because it's much more expensive and complex to do.
The most popular way to lower a car in Russia is to cut off the stock springs using a saw XD. This redneck method is completely wrong, because stock shocks are not suitable with low springs, they may simple blow up because of the stress and tough tension.
