What brand are they? Maybe they supplied the wrong springs, it happens.

I can't see how super super lows would not be low.
Sounds like either you have a veeeery low definition of low, or they gave you the wrong springs.

Maybe give them a week or so, and they will sag and drop some more. But they should definately be lower. Should be about 2" lower than tickford height. If you have 16s or 17s, the lowness probable won't show very well.

when i fitted my springs it only dropped a few more mm after a few days



i say u have been given the wrong springs

What size rims have you got too?
Generally there never actually stamped wrong...
I'd be surprised if they were...
What does it drive like with them?
Did you get your shocks shortened, it might just be sitting on the fully compressed shocks :!:

Pics!
I get the feeling that you've got too great an expectation on how low they'd go.

when i put super lows (pedders) and sports ryder shocks in my xr (before i got them compressed) it dropped it 30mm so youd expect super super lows to drop it at least 40mm
what brand springs were they?

doesnt sound good give them a couple of weeks to see if they sag then if ur still not happy with them take them to a spring specialist and ask for them to be reset at the height that u want the car to sit at.

i'd say you've got lows not superlows. lowered my brothers silvia last w/end and he only went king lows due to front spoiler but i noticed on his the code ended in 'ssl' also so obviously it means something other than super low.
