Cutting springs may not seem so "proper" if the 15 year old struts blow out sooner than normal.

This is why I bought coilovers for the Rabbit. They aren't the best on the market but at least they're designed for lowered ride height- something you can't say with the stock stuff.

I don't want to start an argument though, Frank. Just giving a word of advice from the performance and longevity side of things.
