got my car lowered a couple of months ago, and it started bugging me as soon as i picked it up.

its got lowered king springs (not super lows) front and rear and monroe GTgas shocks and struts

but the problem i have is it seems to sit a coupl centimetres higher at the front thanthe back. i checked the receipt and the box for the springs, and they mached up. but what the??

i suspension from autobarn, and my mechanic fitted them. just wondering if this is 'normal', also a couple of weeks later when i was at my mechanic there was another eb exacly the same.

I have the opposite problem, got mine lowered in january, and the back sits a couple of centimeters higher then the front. Though i'm not too fussed about it at the moment till i get the proper shortened shocks etc.

Mine has King super lows all around, and sits ever so slightly lower at the back than the front, with the sub and tools it sits a little lower again. I hate it.

would putting superlows on the front work, or would that effect handeling?
