I would like to lower only the front end of my ride.
Outside of a lowering kit i was curious if anyone had any other ideas.

I am pleased with the stance in the back, but i would like to obtain
a meaner look in the front by bringing it down a bit.
Any insight would be appreciated.

Changing out the front springs is the way to do it right. I am not an advocate of cutting springs. I know that someone here will tell you to cut your springs, but it won't be me. If springs were meant to be cut, they wouldn't sell lowering springs...IMO.

^ agreed.

Heating the springs is also a cheap option thats tossed around, but like cutting is NO good. I heated the springs on my first car (84 Caddy) and it was GREAT!.....for a year.....then they started creaking VERY loudly every time I turned the wheel.

I sold it after that started so I dont know if there were any other effects but again, springs will be the cheapest legit way to go.

I've seen universal parts that cinch the springs down, but this works about as well as cutting them I'm sure. Probably not a good idea. Of course you could start messing with tire sizes too.
