How long did it take for your springs to settle, and how much additional drop did you get? So far I just have a 7/8" drop in the front, very disappointing.
I thought the springs should get me 1.4" and the perches another .5". My first drive impression is the spring rate is just right, but the struts feel a little light on dampening.
