how much time should it take for the springs to set properly? my rear springs tucked great but the front ones seem the same as stock.

I've heard a couple of weeks to a month, all depends on how much weight and how often.

they should almost immediatly sink down quite a bit. However to fully sink... it all depends. It's been a month and they've not sunk lower than stock? That is a little interesting. Try hitting bumps and stuff to compress the springs more and maybe that will work? j/k I have no idea if it' been a month. On my celica when i intalled lowering springs it sunk down almost immediatly about a inch below stock. And then over the next week sunk down the rest of the way. .25 and .75 inches repsectivly

When I had my springs installed, the front looked like there was barely any difference. There was still a small fender gap, but from further away you could see that it was more or less flush with the feder. Although the front is suppose to drop more than the rear, I noticed the rear drop was more obvious.

I think you just had in your mind that it would be a lot lower as most people do. I wasn't disappionted, because when I started driving around my front sway bar, x-brace and rear exhaust was scraping all the speed bumps.

Looks aside, and what's really important here, HOW DOES IT HANDLE?! :wink
