anyone running them? what groove are you using? i set mine on the lowest groove for what looks like an additional 1/2 inch drop up front. will i or can i expect to have problems when mated to Neuspeeds Sport Springs? the install goes down tomorrow and i'd rather not have to tear it apart after getting it on and realizing it's only a 1/4 inch too low.

I have the same combo, but I had someone install them. I do know I had the fronts a little lower then the back to keep that nice level look of the car. I hate when you see a car and because of how the wheel-well hangs down (panel) it then appears that the back-end looks like it is sagging.

Measure the height of the stock shock perch plate when it is removed. Stand the
shock upright and measure to the lip of the plate. You can then set the Bilsteins
to the same or any other height you want.

Agree with Alfred, it depends upon the year/vin of your car or the spring seats you use.
