You need shorter springs if you want to get really low. The Megan's come with 8 or 9 inch springs rated at like 360lbs or something. 6 inch springs like mine are perfect. 320lbs to 450lbs will work, all up to how stiff you like your ride. You can always get softer springs like 320lbs to 350lbs and just fine tune by adjusting the firmness on the dampers. Since you're just trying to come down a smudge; just ad 1/4 inch preload on the front coils if you haven't already. That will allow you to come down another 1/4 inch. If that's not low enough, new shorter coils are your only option. The rear perches are from the ground control coilover set up. Just some spare parts I had from my old suspension setup.
