Impala springs? I dunno, if it's 2 inches off the top coil cut off, you should be ok, even though you're supposed to cut off full coils. I cut 1 full coil off the front of my 9C1 springs and it lowered it about 2 inches. Just keep all that in mind.

Need more info. Are you talking 2" in length, or height. Were you told it gave a 2" drop, like Josh said? 2" in length sounds really odd. Not to mention that the top of the coil is shaped diffently from the bottom, so I would think that they should have cut anything off the bottom of the coil. I'm no expert though.

I just watched ebay like a hawk and the for sale section to pick up the springs for my SS and the wife's wagon. I didn't want to venture into cutting springs.
