king springs have a reputation for the back sitting slightly lower than the front

how long have they been in?? coils will tend to 'settle' to a slightly lower height after a bit of use.

It will make a difference to what shocks you use and if they are new or not too.
My 1st set of lows took AGES to settle, my superlows took bout 2 weeks.
Will see how i go with the whiteline kit soon.
