Pro Kit Dop Questions.

I installed the Pro Kit springs last week and not real happy with them.
They say 1.6 front and 1.8 in the rear.

I took measuments before and after. I only got .75 in the front and 2 in the rear.
Does anyone know if the front will drop down anymore?
I'm thinking of just going with sportlines because right now it don't even look droped at all.

Well springs do tend to lower a little more as they settle.

But while on the subject from people who already have them, which is probably the better of the two springs, or at least in terms of appearance, Sportlines or the Pro-Kit?

Yea the same with mine.
I have a friend with a stock Mazda 3I that sits lower them mine.
And he noticed last night also that my moms 09 stock LS seems to be lower in the front.

Here is how low i had my last car.
This was a listed 1.4 drop front and rear.
The drop right away was closer to 2 inches.
I don't think they settled much at all.
That's what I was expecting with these also.
That's also the look I want.

I'm dropped on the pro-kit and I think it looks good ....sportlines are too low I bottom out as it is plus the ride is way too rough on sportlines
