so i installed my tokico illumina shocks and nuespeed sport springs the other day.. they ride pretty nice.. but the problem is.. in my opinion it dropped way to low for my sport springs in the front, comparing to pics of other ppl w/nuespeed sports... its not even one finger gap.. my front wheels tuck inside of the fender... i dunno y it dropped so low.. but i still have my gc in my garage.. and was wondering.. would it be bad to run gc in the front, n my sport springs n the back? or.. if ne one noes the problem y it dropped so low n front.. could tell me how to fix it would be great..

do u noe y it dropped so low in the front? the back isn't bad.. 1finger gap n back.. this is the only reason y i dunt wanna get wwrs kit.. b/c i would scrape the shit out of it.. the bump stops were allready cut from my ground control.. do u think they need to be cut different for springs?

No the bumpstops won't effect how it sit on the ground just the ride. as for the gaps you want less in the front than the rear. less than 1 finger is not really to bad. as for running the GC in the front i don't see why it would be a problem at all there is just gonna be a little off with handeling because of the spring rates.
