I got the H.techs cause I thought they would get rid of the massive gap in the front wheel well and give an EVEN front and rear height *wrong*. I only installed the fronts because IFI did the rears I would have ASS SAG (hate that sh!t), the ultimate evil if you are trying to keep your car "clean". Well, what I ended up with was the fronts being like an 1/8 of an inch lower than the back, so they are pretty even now. Here are the pics:



I'll get more shots soon.

I'd wait until the springs settle in before thinking anything of it.

I decided to get Neuspeed Race springs (Supercup Kit) instead of Tein H techs.

H-techs drop the front more than the rear so no saggy butt. Check the side view of my car in my gallery as I have H-tech front and rear :D

well, the drop is good for practical use, and a person not heavily into modding, but the 7gen looks great slammed

what kind of shocks did you pair the h-techs with? if you have koni's, they are height adjustable, so you can lower the front even more. put both sets of springs on and just let them settle out for 2 weeks to see how they look. i don't know too much about your set-up, but my guess is that having two different types of springs wouldn't be the best thing to do for your shocks.

I have a parental control problem. They saw how much money I spent on my 6th gen to have it all go to waste. So there can't be anything done to this one. It has to look stock/OE Accessories so no slamming this one. Nothing after market whatsoever. (I won't get in trouble or anything but I just don't need to hear them ***** about it lol) I'll get a good day pic of the front and rear so you guys can see how low the ass is now and how low it would be dropped 0.7".
Stock shock btw

Ah, you're right. But before my fronts settled, it was pretty even with the back. I'm figuring it took an hour for the fronts, so about 45 minutes to install the rears?
Well, here's a day pic of the "front only" drop:

you should get the supercup kit and just make the front and rear perches different to make the drop even.

i just got my supercup kit installed a couple weeks ago and even though i'm on the second lowest perch, it's not so low that its bothersome.

If you do decide to go lower, I would HIGHLY recommend getting coilovers. Not only will ride quality improve, but you can adjust EVERYTHING from ride hight to damping (depending on what system you go with). Suspension is the one of the most fun and most noticeable mods you can do.
