Ok, so i just installed my sportlines and the drop doesnt appear to be as low as others with the same springs. do they take a while to settle or what. i had skunk2 springs on it before but wanted the rear to be lower so i went with sportlines due to the fact that they give a more even drop, but i was just wondering.

yea give it a week or so. You can see my pictures of lowering my Si on sportlines.

The pics from right after the drop aren't as low as the more recent pics. It took up to 2 weeks to fully settle :)

right after we dropped it, I still had a 2 finger gap. Now i have no gap

I'm trying to hold out until the Koni's are released, but if i don't see something by the end of spring/beginning of summer, i may go with something else. I have had this incredible urge to work on my car lately... just no money to do it with at the moment :\

^ dude i totally feel you...i had the urge of getting down and dirty with the baby mama.
but no cash.

hmm i see that most are using tokico's with sportlines.
i think i will wait as well for the koni's or Tokico D-spec.
