Rear lowering spring concern

After reading Bucko's comments on the problems of a previous poster who lowered his rear end, I became concerned that I could experience a similar problem. I installed the Route 66 rear springs. The were advertised to lower the rear 1/2 inch, therefore not requiring any other adjustments, such as adding the adjustable panhard bar. By measurement, the car only lowered 1/4 inch and has stayed at 1/4 inch for 3 months now. Will that 1/4 inch, or even 1/2 inch cause any problem down the road? Also, wondering if anyone else has installed the Route 66 springs and if so, how much did the springs lower their cars, and their opinion of the ride quality with the springs.

If the manufacturer of the kit advertises that it does not require any other adjustments, then I'd hold them to it. Is it in writing anywhere? Got a copy of it from them, or their site?

I'd still take it to an alignment shop for piece of mind and while they are at it, have them check the geometry front and rear.
It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.
