Have you let the springs settle? Did you install them yourself?

It has dropped about 1. 5 in back but front is about a inch higher. The drop was supposed to be 1,4 in back 1.3 in front since it's a vert.. . I'vehad them in for about 5 yrs. IIt'sjust now i got some 19 inch rims on there and the height is killing me. ( And no I had a shop install them). I dont see how a. .1" difference is more like 1 inch or more in difference from front to back. Plus it gets lower when u get in but the front doesn't move.. Do u guys know any reason it would be so much higher in the front.

Think you could post up some pictures? Gas the car always been like that or has it just happened refently?

My stock GT shocks lasted over a year when I was lowered 1.5" and then went another 4 months at 2.5" before I finally decided to just replace them.

Yeah I'm trying to post a pic now. It's always been higher in the front. I've driven about 35 thousand miles with the 1.4 back and 1.3 front drop. Settled to about 1.5 and I havnt had any other suspension damage. (knock on wood). Over speed bumps the back end has a little left in the shock but the front u can still hear the woosh of the shock really good. Probably because it's a inch higher and not a tenth of a inch like it's supposed to be. Lol

Are you sure the front rose up? Maybe the rear is sagging
