Anyone has pics of sedan with UUC spring?

I'm curious... what the drop looks like...
How's the ride? Is it comfortable?

They have very good pics on www.uucmotorwerks.com.

As for ride quality, they are a little stiffer than stock and are still very comfortable.

Yes they really tuck in at the rear. when i installed mine in the rear the drivers side, upper spring pad came out too and i wornglu placed it upside down. Not the spring but the upper spring pad. It really was tucked in. then i realized my mistake and corrected it about a week later.
now the height is about 1/4 of an inch and the cool thing the rear camber being adjustible i brought the camber back from -1.9 top -1.6 and it really handles good.
if i put back my spare the added 45 lbs. will bring the car down more.

Hmmm..I bought the UUC springs about 2 months ago and have been waiting forever on the UUC swaybar set so I can install everything at once!! So until then, I just get to stare at the springs! But anyways, when I got my 18" tires on, the front lifted up a lot more than the rear. In seeing that link that Cal provided, it looks like the rear got slammed, but no noticeable improvement on the front?!?
I just saw Clem's hot new make-over and digging his H&R race springs...Hmmm..What do you all think?!

Hopefully I'll have some updated pics with UUC springs on my sedan maybe next week. Atleast some close up shots so you can see the drop.

And Yes, Dev, I'll remember to send you a PM as soon as I get them installed.

Nick,

The UUC springs will provide an even drop BOTH front and rear, unlike say something like H&R race which drops the front more than the rear. In stock form, there is more of a wheel gap in the front than in the rear, that is why with the UUC springs it seems like there is more of a drop in the back relative to the front.
