Re: Lowered SRX
I grew up around lowered vehicles and if it wasn't bagged, then your springs were cut. I know that this is technically incorrect, and many people disagree with cutting springs. Granted this was all on older vehicles (mainly classic hot rods), I guess a firm and bumpy ride was an acceptable trade off to achieve the desired stance. If cutting 1 coil off doesn't kill the ride, but improves the look, I say GREAT! I've thought about doing it if I can't find Eibach springs for mine. Your SRX looks great, you only did the front right? it looks to have a slight rake. As a random thought....I wonder if the V8 and V6 have different springs since the weight is different. If so, it should be possible to put V6 springs on a V8 and get a lowered ride. I know my V8 swapped 240z had different springs to handle the weight of the V8.

Re: Lowered SRX
My 2 cents ( probably not even worth that) is that the shock would have less movement, given it will be compressed more in it's rest state. Not sure if that's good or bad, but on the face of it, doesn't seem to be a problem.
