don't cut the coils. that is too nice a truck to have that done. just man up and spend the extra few bucks on lowering springs.

do it right or don't do it at all.

x2 you saved a hell of a lot of money on the truck, so why not spend your saved money on some good parts?

Sweet 1st gen, I'd say a great candidate for a 5.0 swap to go with the 5-speed
