Sorry for delay I have been swapped lately (taxes, work, etc!) Pics coming soon.

I bought these springs used from a member here. I am pretty sure there are a few vendors that can get these for you (for sure wheelsboutique can get them--in miami).

It seems to have settled a bit (not much--guessing since they were used springs)

Front Driver: 13.5''
Front Passenger: 13''

Rear Driver: 12.75''
Rear Passenger: 12.5''

This makes sense most springs (in my experience) usually leave the driver side a little higher to compensate for the driver weight so that the car is level with the driver inside.

The day just gets better...just got rained on when taking these mesurements at work lol

I need to go out and measure mine today- after work, im going to go do an alignment on my car- it almost seems like my car sits a little higher in the rear than some with RD springs. Maybe because of the 15mm spacers all the way around- it causes the tires to stick out and not have that 'tucked' look

my pics for comparison from today by my amazing quality iphone camera
