What is the best way for me to lower my 9c1. I have heard everything from drop spindle to cutting coil springs. I want to know the safest, yet a inexpensive way to do this. Any help wpuld be apprciated.

How low do you want to go? That's the question.
The easiest and probably cheapest is to find someone selling a set of stock SS springs.
I found a set for $80 bucks last year. Plus, I cut 1/2 coil off the fronts.
Looks good...only problem is my Craftsman jack doesn't fit under the front crossmember anymore.

Yeah, springs are the way to go. Intrax are inexpensive and ride pretty good, I have DJM because they boasted a bigger drop, 2 up front and 3 in the rear, I actually got a 1/4 or so inch more drop in both the front and the rear.

When I replaced my suspension I used the following:

SLP sway bars
Eibach springs
Bilstein shocks
Moog idler, tie rods, etc.
Energy Suspension poly bushings
Buick steering dampener and center-link
9C1 front control arms with 5/8" ball joints

The car sits much lower. There is just enough room to get my 2 ton floor jack under the frame from the side...

If i had to do it again I probably wouldn't. It looks cool but scraping speed bumps at 1 MPH with just me in the car is rediculous!
