nope, you did it right.

i've got neuspeed sports and bilsteins which seem to be a pretty mild setup compared to GCs and koni yellow.

if it's really that bad get some lower rate ERS springs from eibach, and set your shocks to full soft.

otherwise, you were never meant to drive a lowered car.

i totally agree. experiment with different settings. plus you have to break in your new koni's and gcs... they will settle as you drive your car more and you will feel the instantaneous difference, trust me on this one....

BTW how much did you get it for?

i'm on gc's and kyb agx. My ride is smooth with my settings at 2 in the front and 4 in the rear. Perhaps you just set your shocks too stiff?

i paid 325 for the gcs and 525 for the konis.....also should the spring rate be higher or lower in the back??? because i was thinking that i had the springs switched...cuz my bro did the same thing on a 98 accord and the ride was a lot better after he switched them back
