Settling time for new springs and alignment
 
Hi guys, got my car lowered on eibach prokits and the ride height is only alittle lower than stock, ive waited a week and its still the same, will the spings stil settle after this and possibly lower?...will alignment make it lower?

Prob not... Prokit are only a tad lower then the stock sport springs.

Get them out and get some SportLines or H&R springs.

If you want it lower get some H&R Race springs.

I would say put about 100 miles on it and that's the best you're going to get granted you seated them properly when installing.

When you installed them, they had to be aligned properly on the spring perches. when I changed my shocks I marked the existing springs and made a mental note to make sure they go back the same way. Basically the end of the spring has to butt up against that lip in the perch, and the rubber pad should be aligned in there as well.
