Anyone else have springs that continue to sag?

I installed a KW sleeve kit early this year and I immediately setup the ride height to be -1"F and -.75"R from stock. Within 2 weeks, the springs settled a little less than .25" in front and little more than .125" in the rear. I then readjusted to bring it back to -1"F and -.75"R and got an alignment done.

So it's been several months since making those adjustments and my car is sitting lower than ever now at -1.25"F and -1.125"R. That's another quarter inch sag in the front and a considerable half inch drop in the rear.

Has anyone else experienced this with KW or any other manufacturer for that matter? Some settling is definitely expected, which is why I waited a few weeks to make my first adjustment. I guess I just didn't expect to need to do it again.
