I just installed these on my EX. With the back springs set all the way down and the back struts set all the way down there is a 2 finger gap in the back, yet i can drop the front to the ground.. Anyone experience the same problem with these coilovers?

8kg/mm front and 10kg/mm rear

i have a friend with a subaru riding the same coils and he has the ability to dump it if needed, i'm not sure if they are all like this but i cannot seem to figure out why..

no no, i meant how low can you drop the megans like 3" for front and back? maybe you did something wrong on the install?

nope, everything is right on the install.. i've read it's a 3in drop, which it will do in the front but only about an inch in the back

1" in the back? thats it, i dont believe that lol pretty stupid if you ask me. you must have the wrong info on the drop rate lol. If your buddy in the subaru can slam it, i don't believe there is only 1" drop in the back
THIS IS WHAT IT SAYS ON MEGANRACING.com

"You can raise your car up to factory height for OEM appearance with performance handling or you can drop your car all the way down for an aggressive stance lowering your center of gravity to gain full potential of your car’s handling capabilities."

How long have you ride the car with the coil overs, becuase they need to compesate lol dont know how to explain it; just drive a couple of days and see if it lowers some more. Ohh and yes the lower the car the worts the ride, u are going to feel every bump out there

after being on the phone with megan for a half hour, emailing them pics, once again reinstalling the struts there still seems to be no way to lower these rear coilovers, i am very unhappy with the the ride height and stiffness.. i will definatly be ordering skunk2's in the next week.
