suspension calibration

Does anyone know if its possible to recalibrate your shock to be lower? or do you need to buy new springs (like H&R springs)

thanks

You can use a hack saw too if you don't have a torch.

Seriously though, a proper lower will require new springs and new shocks. Well, if you did a very slight drop, you might be able to get away with using the stock shocks.

I asked a classmate that used to work at Dinan and he told me that you can not cut or lower the shocks. The shocks' cylinders are pretty long as well. In short: you will need to buy new shocks/springs if you want to lower it.
