Even with the trim back on the fender, These "lowereing" springs didnt make too much of a difference. The back was done before I bought the car, they seem to do the trick tho. Had to put new shocks, stabilizer links, tie rods, idler arm too. The pass side spring was bent and the drivers side had to be cut out as well as the ols shocks. Appears as tho the lower ball joints were replaced, but the original riveted ones are still at the top!

BTW those are the new rain guards on the doors Very Happy

As long as you clocked the springs right, it should settle some. Did you put in new isolators? If you did, you added probly a 1/2" of ride height to it...

Give it a couple days. Bill is correct, it will settle some.
