I always am confused by you benny. In my mind yes cutting the tube would lowering it a good amount while still leaving the same ride essentially. I just dont know how easy it is to do that. You could also look into modifying the spindle location as well.

My idea would be to leave that bottom mount for strength while making the spindle higher on the tube... Idk how easy/possible that is since I never have had my hands on them.

Im sure troy can help out a bit though since he as had some rollas.

the spindle is part of the area that bolts to the steering arm.. and i think it is cast.. or forged.. something that is not easily welded.. by me atleast.. i am just looking at options..

i would leave everything up to the perch stock.. taking out the housing length for short stroke inserts ABOVE the perch.. as to gain back travel when using a lowering spring..

the way the lower control arm mounts to the spring/shock assembly doesn't help with the idea of drop spindles either, nor is the mounting point all that great/strong on 86 setups either.

I went with JIC front coilovers/TRD-tokico short strokes on my 86's since they were daily driven and drifted.

I would suppose lowering springs/short strokes all around would be fine and a decent setup, not super low though.

Search the how to install GC coilovers for the corolla basically they cut the tube add a different spacer to the bottom of the shock and put it all back together.
