Save those measurements and take another one at 2k. I'm just curious about settling. I forgot to take measurements, but I would swear my pro kit just dropped a bit more. I will measure sometime this week or next.

I have a tough time believing the steeda pic has them installed due to the wheel gap.

I leave you with the standard pics or it didnt happen

Bump for any feedback on the FRPP spring kit - anyone? I already told my wife I was getting them, lol, I really want to know how tolerable they are for the non-enthusiast.

I would love to see how his measure compared to mine...

Stock springs with 1/4 coil in the rear cut: 26 7/16" front and 26 11/16" rear.

2010+ MS3 springs with 1 full coil cut off the front: 25 13/16" front and 25 15/16" rear.

So pretty much an inch all around (more in the rear if you started with completely stock rears [mine were cut]).
