h&r sports installed :(

hey everyone. i just got my h&r sport springs installed yesterday. i have to say im not too happy with the outcome. the rear has the sag look to it that i was trying desperately to avoid. funny cause the drop is supposed to be 1.7f and 1.3r. i figured that would be enough to avoid that look. if you look at the rocker panel and the ground they are perfectly perpendicular, but the wheel wells are so different, it gives the illusion of sagging. also, the rear springs are already making noise when i go over big bumps or up driveways on an angle. it seems to be that the upper dead coils are banging on themselves when there is weight taken off and reapplied to them. i guess ill be in the market for something else now. ill just have to deal with them until i can find something better. thinking about some tenzo coilovers, but didn't really want to go that route. anyone who has any sort of adjustable coilover can throw out their suggestions...let me know if they are noisy or bumpy etc. all info would be greatly appreciated.

thanks, chris.

Perhaps wait a bit longer for it to settle down?

I had my H&R sports installed about 3 weeks ago.I too was having some squeaking in the passenger front, but it has now pretty much gone away completley.Check your bushing for the other components of your suspension and lube them,it worked for me.

you should get the alignment right after install. the springs wont be that much different that you will need another alignment.
