Question for whoever has the Down springs.
My rear is much lower than my front, rear = 1 finger gap // front = 2 finger gap, doesn't look right.
shouldn't it be 1 finger gap all around?

Also, passenger side is about 0.5" higher than driver side. Springs still haven't settled in, but once settled in, will it even out? because the rear on my drivers side looks like its sagging/tucking, can't see top of tire. While the passenger rear, the top of tire is still visible.

The drop is correct as the car comes with reverse rake from factory. Why RS*R chose to accentuate this, I do not know. But from the specs, you can see that they didn't do much to reduce the factory reverse rake.

Maybe it's to ensure that there will be no rubbing during full lock over bumps?

Stock: 1 Finger rear, 3 finger front (On 19's)
RS*R Down: Flush rear, 1.5 finger front



Just freshly lowered on RS*R Down Springs...

The reverse rake is the only thing stopping me from getting springs. Is there a remedy for this?

I have the same gap on my car with my 20" wheels.

I think we have a similar gap since we have similar sizes. I might have more of a gap in front because I think you said you had 235/30 in the front and I have 225/30.

What a great resource. This should be pinned!

Now I need to find a distributor that carries the half down springs... Any one have any ideas?

I just ordered mine and am getting them installed this Saturday. I assume the rake is to allow for entry into angled driveways without scraping or getting stuck. I'm hoping to remedy this gap appearance by putting 19s on sometime next year.

To me, they are pretty much the perfect height. How's the ride quality compared to stock ones though? Did it get stiffer or what?

Ride quality was about the same honestly except in Sport+, felt bumpier but that's to be expected. I just got my alignment and spacers put on today, 17mm in front and 18mm in rear and now am getting minor rubbing issues in the fronts when I go over bumps. They're stacking spacers so I might go to a 15mm in front. Will post some pics later.
