car is dropped like none other in the back but it isn't dropped much in the front, its so low that the wheels are under the body of the car by like 1mm, handling is about the same unfortunately but the car feels alot more solid when its doing its job some one told me it takes a few days for the springs to settle

its day 2 after the install, car feels alot better now, shocks are less noisy and springs are beginning to settle, noticing improvements in corner entry/ exit speed now :) it should take a grand total of 4 to 5 days for the shocks and springs to settle

Good to know you are enjoying your car more, I hope those are the correct expectations or things you wanted to achieve?

yeah w/ the h&r spring and bilstein shock combo the rear of the car is extremely low, and the front is left around stock, the h&r springs drop the front like 1.5 inches but for some reason the bilstein shocks raise the car a little over a inch so you can't really notice a difference over stock in the front. Lots of camber adjustment needed in the rear lol, droppage is a little to extreme.
