Ride didn't change at all when I installed mine - the only change was the front got slightly lower.

I recently removed my front perch spring. It was making so much noise that I couldn't stand it. I decided to have a reverse raked look than driving around like something is loose. I went back to my Performance spring/shock and no noise. My tech did a good job of installing. Removed the rubber grommets. Made sure the metal rings were placed properly and bolts were super tight. No success so now back to my performance setup w/o perch. Oh well:

Can you swap out the spring perch on an XI E92 sports suspension to drop the front down a bit? Or is this only for RWD applications?
