Just got off the phone w/ RS*R and super down is just about under 2inches of a drop while the down springs are just over 1"

Here's a better shot of the profile of the car with the springs all settled in now:

I've noticed on springs usually the front tends to be higher.

Currently on the F Sport Springs, the front of my car is slightly higher, which is awful.

I couldn't see clearly on the pictures, but for the Super Down Springs, is the front higher? Even at all slightly?

What are the spring rates on the Super Downs?

We need pics of the Downs and SuperDowns on cars with stock wheels. That will give a better idea of how low it is compared to stock.

The front of my car is definitely lower than the rear on these RS*R springs. Here are some better shots that show the difference between the drop up front and drop in the rear:

Click the image to open in full size.

As you can see, there is minimal gap up front.

Above, you can kind of see that the rear is higher. But this pic really shows there is substantially more gap in the rear than up front:

See that gap?

As for spring rates on the super downs, that I don't know- sorry!!! Maybe another member can chime in and answer?

Sorry, already had the wheels installed when I got the springs. I'm sure there will be others who drop the car on stock wheels and can show what it looks like

Always get an alignment after installing springs.

Think the tein s-tech are available now, think the drop is pretty much between superdowns and downs. Look forward to see someone run them. 1.5inch drop I think I read .
