Front i can fit 2 fingers, rear fits 3 fingers, doesnt look as good as level, but probably better than lower rear than front :)

Will get prokit soon.

benzondubs Oh hi all. If I might add. I love my Eibach Pro kit. 2013 se hatch had about 5000km on it at time of install. Now at 60500km and I can feel the stock struts are pretty worn out. Time for coilovers I guess!

Jmartini1104 Looks great! And good to know about the ride quality, that's been the biggest holdup for me with getting new suspension.

Anyways if anyone has any input to resolve this, please pass the word.

Read your comment wrong. Sorry. But yes, much lower in the rear.

Slo86GT I dunno about all that. 2/3 finger gaps are 1.5-2". Prokit is only labelled to lower .8, and that'd be about 1" off the tire still. My Sportlines are right on the tire, so about 1" more...

You do the math, cause I know what I see.
