KWv2 + H&R Sways installed!

I had my KWv2's installed a few weeks ago and was very happy with the change over stock, however there was still some body roll and understeer. So yestarday I had the H&R sways installed, and all I can say is wow.... The car handles great, ride isn't harsh, steering is very neutral, and no more of that floaty feeling at speed.

If anyone is thinking about doing this setup, go for it. Well worth the price of parts and install.

How much (if at all) did you lower the car?

Too much, I actually want to bring it up all around, but am waiting for my wheels before I do since I know I won't rub with stock wheels. I am about 1/4" from max drop, I will probably bring the front up 1/4" and rear 1/2" once I get my wheels.

Okay, from a suspension noob... how much is max drop? 1.5"?

The reason I'm wondering is that whenever I talk shocks/springs everyone says I should do KW's instead, but I don't want to drop much at all, maybe just enough in the front to close up the fender gap a bit. Can KWV2's adjust up that high?
