Lowering springs

Ok fellas, my car is lowered with 18 inch shelby wheels. The springs used are the Dub/ Roush springs which are suppose to lower the car 1 inch up front and 1.5 out back. Well the back did not drop much. The measurements from ground to fender are 28" up front and almost 29" out back. Does anyone here recommend a spring for the back that would lower the back a bit more? Rumors are that the Dub edition springs do not lower the car as advertised. Also, I am happy with the front springs. Pic below

Did u measure before the drop or after. And if you added the wheels during the install of your drop kit your really not going to see much difference in the fender well gap.

I have seen other cars with the pro kit and the back sits much lower. Springs have been on car about 3 months

Very nice indeed! I cant really tell how much gap you have outback. By the way, are you on stock shocks and struts?
