Did you buy a set of Intrax lowering spring for your Gen3 I4 Camry that were actually made for a Gen4 V6 Camry, just because they were dirt cheap?

Were you ridiculously dissatisfied with the front wheel well gap?

Well here's your solution: cut the front springs!

Before:



During:




After:




Fashooo

Big ups to my buddy Tim from Davis Motorsports Club for all his help!

Please note that these are AFTERMARKET springs. We do not recommend cutting stock springs!

After installing the Intrax lowering spring the first time, how much more did it go down after a week or so. Or did it just stay at the same height after you changed the springs?

I think I may have to cut the front spring as well, or just get more meat on my tires.

I've been riding on my Tokico/Intrax setup since July 2008, and while the car had dropped about an inch from stock after the install, it just wasn't doing it for me, heh. The ride height stayed about the same up to now, so I decided I might as well go ahead and cut them down.

Nestor, if you think that is Dump, check out mines when i cut too much off, it was 1 inch off the ground. the tire size is 205 40 17


And this is cut on 98 camry 4cyl springs with tire size 205 45 17. i have atleast nearly 2 inch or less on the ride height now. i prefer cuttin 98 camry springs. reason why is its not as bouncy as any other spring that i cut before.

cutting stock springs? do you have upgraded shocks? it does look good though:thumbsup:

(please, no one consider doing this...not smart. nothing good has EVER come from screwing with OEM suspension).

Based on what I've seen on TN, spring companies seem to have a bias towards the V6 models... Even for people who actually buy springs that are actually for their cars and engines, I can recall seeing a lot of cases where I4s have sit higher in the front than many of us would like.

At the end of the day, if I don't like it, then I'll switch out the springs.

^ I don't know how your H&R springs are so low Joe... I have had mine on the car for 4 years and it still looks fail.

And holy crap, you cut off A LOT of spring. I really hope the spring doesn't fly off of the perch and leave you pwned. If you kids really want to go low, you need to get coilovers. Seriously. That is the only way to go for a legit drop that won't leave you stranded or dead...

And these are progessive springs right?
Intrax springs are progressive in the rear (which helps when putting a lot or crap in the trunk) and linear in the front.

I also want to say that I love the drop on my I4 with the Intrax for the I4, no cutting needed.
