Well as you know I installed the rear eibachs a couple weeks ago. Got about 1.6 or so lower. I put just one front on today, just barley a half inch. I'm bummed about that. was hoping for close to 1 inch. don't know weather it is even worth the trouble. Anybody else get this result?:frown2:

The fronts will settle down some after you put some miles on them. My rears ended up two inches plus and I got the stance I wanted.

I would wager that you need to install the second spring to get a good read on how much difference they make. Your anti-sway bar will interfere with an unbalanced spring height.

Just to be sure, you only changed the spring...... You re-installed the same front shock, right?

Hey Dino, you definitely need to install the second spring to get the drop. After a short cruise you should get at least a 1" drop.

Happy New Year,
Ken
