My butt sticks out :-(

I lowered my car a few weeks ago and i lvoe the result my front end is so firggen low, the wheels are almost tucked into the wells. I like the look.
However on the back i still have some space, and its still sticking up.
I not the stock focus sits a little higher in back...but i did 2 inch drop on the front and back...Should i get 2 different springs? like keep the 2 inch in the front but go with a 2.5 in the back?

The focus back is taller than the front. So if you do a 2 in drop all around, the rear will still be taller.

You still have your coilovers don't you Brad? Looks like you might have a buyer lol Coilovers offer the best results for lowering since it allows a ride height adjustment. Whether you want to go 2" up front and possibly 2.25" in the back to make it a more level stance.
