Default Anyone cut their springs

Before anyone wants to rant I just need to hear if someone has done this and the results. I have cut several sets with success but non on the Rams. I have owned a 2011 RT and 2012 Crew, both with the BT kit and have been very happy. I should see my new 2014 RT tomorrow. I still have the factory set off of my 2011 so if I mess them up I will just toss them and order another BT kit.

no problemo,
I cut both front & rear on my McG 2/4 'economy' kit to get the drop/stance I wanted...

Airlift 1000 bags in the back really help when towing or just 'not bottoming out' on rough roads ..

also comments on the Airlift instal

I used an ox-acetelyne torch to cut,
and a 4" angle grinder to clean up the cut end before install
