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.
