My only question or concern is the fact that eibach claims 1.4 inch drop for the front, and a 1 inch drop for the rear on E90 sedans.

My concern is that I already have achieved a 1 inch drop in the rear but the front seems to be still raked a bit.

Are they still going to settle in the front? Does it take longer for the front to settle?

Maybe maybe not. Supreme Power lowering perches if not. Just installed mine and they do indeed drop the front .4-.5 inches. And if installed correctly, rides exactly like prior to their install.
Will I need to get it re-aligned?
I had read one wouldn't be needed and sure enough when the shop was done they checked and it was exactly as before the job. So I would guess no alignment needed
Sounds good, I may need one as my rear camber was at -1.5 and I want it at -1 or less.

Does anyone know if I Should I have loosened the front lower control arm and anything else to let the suspension settle and then torque with weight loaded?

The front doesn't seem to have achieved the full drop and is slight higher than rear is and the eibach pro kit is supposed to completely fix the rake on the xi and mine is still there yet the rear has actually went past a inch.
