Default RS R Super Down Springs

So I just got my rsr superdown installed on my car, everything rides nice and smooth but notice the front sits a little bit higher then the rear. Now just wondering if it sopose to be like that or do I have to wait for it to settle. Hwo ever with the superdown please let me know asap. If you had the same problem as me

That's how it is my man, the drop is the same front and rear. They will settle as well. I am just happy that we can drop our car ~1.5 inches and have such a smooth ride still.

that how it is. Its a perfectly even drop. Only way to get a rake is going to be with coilovers. Same issue with the 2nd gen IS and 3rd Gen GS, rear fender sits slightly lower then the front fender

I just figured I would post pictures for you to see versus telling you my opinion. I had my springs installed mid-June, these are recent pictures

In terms of size, this is the closest thing to stock F-Sport wheels I've seen:

Damn the drop looks great. I was having a real hard time deciding between these and the Tanabe's. But with all the camber and tire wear issues I was hearing about, along with rubbing issues I just couldn't pull the trigger on the RS*R's. My Tanabe's should get here tomorrow, I hope I don't regret it lol ... I just need to find some good spacers and I think the stock 19's will look great!

I understand your reasoning completely. But in all honesty, I wonder what the true difference is. I would like to see the mileage difference on new set of tires between those running Tanabe's and those running RSR super downs. Alignment results (rear camber specifically) seem to vary more so with the Tanabe's than the SDS. Some people's results are "in spec" while others have been as bad as the SDS. Either way, you cannot go wrong with the end result with either spring set.
