    That sentence hurt my head to read.


    What shocks/struts are you running currently? What lowering springs?

    There's your problem.

    Normally when you get lowering springs, you change the spring rate. You need aftermarket shocks/struts that are able to compensate for the load put on the new springs.
    There's plenty of good brands out there to choose from. Bilstein, Tokico, Strange, etc etc..
