I run 9 1/2 with adjustable spacers(hidden ***** jacks). Yes, rates will go up if you cut the springs. Check out the toolbox to get a ballpark figure on how much.

yeh your spring rates will increase when you cut them it is best you take it to a spring place and get it tested and see what rate they are they dont incease by much but it depends on how much you cut off c ya

The spring rate will not go up enough for you to notice it over how much better your car is handling. $0.02
