Whatever you do, do not cut your springs, it's very dangerous, so just spend the money for a proper suspension package.

if you lower 2in or more you might have to get a new sway bar the stock one does not accomodate for the lower ride height. i know that is how it is in the gti's

Get a coil compressor and definitely get a guide to take you through the steps of removing the old.

if not

"you'll shoot your eye out" literally

make sure to do you research before taking on this project.
