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

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