Springs on front only...

I'm thinking about buying some springs. But only my front needs lowering because my rear is perfect. Would I be able to just run springs on front and leave rear stock?

Im interested in this as well. Did you notice any difference in handling? Did the car feel unbalanced?

Have you considered lowering perches? Fixed my rake after I replaced my front strut mounts, which were significantly taller than my discontinued originals.

Yes, but I don't think it will be low enough.
