I installed my Eibach prokit and FRPP caster camber plates, my question is after i installed the springs and lowered the car off the jack my front dropped 1" right away and the rear a 1/2". after driving about 40 miles the front went down another 1/4" to 1 1/4" total . and the rear is still only a 1/2" lower than stock, WTF? will the rear take longer to drop because there is no weight in the back? I installed the springs exactly as the instructions show. How long should i wait to go for and alignment?

I got mine done about a week after I had my eibach springs put on. It settled a little more right after the springs were put in but not much.

I know exactly how you feel. Mine took a solid week, and I freaked when it first came off the lift. On my vehicle, the rear actually dropped a bit more, but I suspect that's the extra weight of the convertible. The front finally came down and it all leveled out.

do you have iso's or did you keep them in? it can take up to six months for them to fully settle. mine took less than a week, but i still havent gotten an alignment and mine were installed in January. :-\

well its been a couple more days. i took her for a long cruise today and i measured it when i got home and the front went down another 1/4" and the rear went down another 1/4". So the front went 1 1/2" total lower and the rear 3/4". hopefully the rear drops more after a few more days of driving.
