Most people complain and resort to this when the rear is lower..when the front is lower like in your case the rake effect looks cool, I have coils and I raked mine so the front is lower purposely..looks cool and differnet

Yes, there are safety issues you need to worry about. Cutting coils off of springs will change the characteristics of it in terms of how it compresses/decompresses. You'll be at the point where they're going to be forced to work in a way that they weren't designed to, so that's why you should save up and get some coilovers if you want full control of the height.

I remember reading a story about a forum member who had cut springs and their suspension gave out during a turn, and ended up wrecking.

If you can't do it right the first time, dont' do it at all. You pay cheap, you pay twice.

You pay cheap, you could pay with your life. Springs are to spec for important reasons and should not be adjusted out of spec by cutting them.
