Fronts : cutting them 1 coil is approx 2" drop. To match SS height, you're looking at approx 3/4 coil. Cut from the BOTTOM of the spring (NOT the flat part on top)

Rears : since they are double pigtailed, they can't be safely cut.

On my wagon, before i bagged it, i clamped the rear springs. Worked awesome. Ride was still good and everything. I never saw the point of buying the lowered rear springs since i knew it was gonna be bagged. You can buy the clamps at any parts store. Buying or renting a spring compressor also helps. Other than that, it's a pretty easy job.
