NEW Eibach 3837.140 kit... front is too high?
I had issues with my car being too low. One was I scraped on everything, and second I just kept getting hassled by everyone when trying to get it inspected. ALSO, upon inspection of the OLD springs, one was sagging pretty good. This was an Eibach kit from years ago that I don't know the part number. It was their "extra low" kit (at least that's what the previous owner said). They were blue if that matters.
SO... I ended up getting a NEW Eibach kit as I got it cheap and I liked Eibach in the past. I wanted it to be raised up a bit, but lower than stock. After installing the springs (I'm 90% certain they're in there correctly, no extra spacers, in "the groove", looks all correct front and back), the front looks WAY to high.
The back looks good to me, the front seems to look higher than stock. I hate it. I'm about to put the old springs back on but, wanted to know if this is normal and if they'll "settle in" after a while.
Car drives like brand new, doesn't float around like it did on the "older" springs. Handles great, just looks strange.
Any suggestions / ideas?
Thanks in advance.
NOTE: I know I'm missing the front trim pieces, so that gap would be less with them on, but still that looks high to me! Am I wrong?
