Ive been searching for a little while for the guy who heated his stock coils to lower his van just a bit. My question for him would be; did you heat the lower or upper section of the coil spring?

You don't heat your springs, you either cut them or replace them.
Heating metal anneals it, making it soft and brittle. Not a good idea for something that is responsible for holding your vehicle up.

I know a local that is trying to sell a brand new set of Tein S-Techs I sold them since they just sold their van.

What kind of drop did you get from 2 coils up front and 1 in the rear?
