How with cheapo suspension

Ok keep in mind this is a budget build. Will upgrade later when I outgrow this combo.

so Im going with monroe 4cyl struts and v8 shocks

for springs I have a few combos i need help with

Thinking stock 4cyl front and v8 rear
Anyone have pics of this setup on a gt(looking for stance)
If I went with this should I cut a coil out of the springs?

Or

Thinking Moroso Front springs cut 1.5-2 coils
with either lowering springs cut one coil or v8 springs cut one coil.


Any body that has used a similar set up spring wise let me know what you think and if you have pics that would be sweet.

BTW thanks Scott
