Ok, I planned on taking measurements before, but I forgot my tape measure and by the time my ride came to pick me up (who I asked to bring one) the car was already up on the rack, so I didn't take before measurements.
Visually, the rear appears to be sitting much lower and the front looks almost stock.
I just did the swap on Friday and drove about 50 miles so far. Also the car only has about 850 miles on the odometer. So maybe the whole suspension system as well as new springs need time to settle.
I did take before & after photos and "super imposed them".
See below of supposedly 1" drop in front & 1.25" drop in rear
Disclaimer: the angles could be slightly different, lighting is definitely different. For a true visual measurement, I'd have had to use a tripod so camera is exactly at same height for all photos, so there is no angle distortion.
I did take after measurements:
Front: 28 5/16
Rear: 28 1/8
From what I've seen stock is about 28.75" front & 29.50" rear ?
So I dropped 1/2" in the front & 1.5" in the rear?
I bought the convertible specific springs which supposedly have a little heavier spring rate (5lbs diff) on the rear for the convertible.
I think there's something off... ie: not enough in front & a little too much in rear!
What do you guys (& gals) think?
