Over the weekend I lowered my xr6. It imediately dropped a little bit which I was happy with because I know that that springs need time to settle in a bit. Since then I have done apprx 120 km and they dont seem to have gotten any lower.

I lowered the car on SL up front and SSL in the rear so it should be a fair drop.

I just thought that they would have settled a bit more over the 120km than what they have or will they drop more with a bit more driving?

Thanks.

Its not distance travelled, its time, about 3 mths, then they just ever so slowly creep down further over time. Take another measurement in 5 yrs time, if you still have it, it'll be lower again. Springs don't last forever.

It takes up to 2 weeks for springs to settle but will drop a fraction more over a long period of time.

Ultralows in the rear of BAs dont sit that low if they are kings kraddy.
Mate of mines got ultras all around, front sits perfect but hes getting the rears reset cause they sit too high.

got super lows in my EL and i reckon they are still dropping, the drop had slowed down after a month of driving roughly 30km per day.
