springs question

ok i just got lowered my car on springs and the ride is amazing, but i just wanted 2 know if anybody knows how long it takes approx for the springs to settle and how much more they will lower the car once there settled...also, it looks like my rear is droped more than the front and the front has a bigger drop...could it be because the springs have to settle still? or because the fronts are on the back? (i dont think the rear springs fit the front do they?

do you have a system in the back?? that could be weighing the car down... my car looked jacked when i lowered it... not what i was expecting at all... but as time went by it settled nicely.... probably a month or two before it settles but i didn't really pay attention.. even today my gf looked at my car and went "woh its lower then when you first dropped it"... and it was... probably went down about an inch...

it takes anywhere from a week to a month to settle. it all depends on how much you drive the car. some springs claim they don't sag at all like teins so they won't get much lower than how they already are. i lowered mine 1.75 in the front and 1.5 in the rear with full interior. i stripped about 100lbs off the rear and now the back end is JACKED so taking off weight from the back will help you raise it up a bit. civics have smaller wheel archs in the back so it will look lower at the back unless you lower the front quite a bit more than the rear.

.......

i did 1.6 in the front and 1 in the back....rs-r springs, but im guessing it just needs to settle, the front and back are just about even but im guessing the front springs are stiffer due to more weight from the motor so theyll take a bit longer 2 settle....battle endless told me itll take about a month 2 settle (thats wherei bought em) amazing ride quality!!!
