    H&R Springs -- confused about "claimed" drop *pics*

    Just installed some Rohana wheels and H&R Springs on my gf's 08 CTS. H&R claims the drop is 1.5-2"... but i feel it barely dropped the car at all. I know the springs will settle a little, but even then it will only drop a fraction of an inch. Anybody else have experience with H&R Springs on the CTS? If so, did yours drop more? I may end up having to take this off and installing a coilover setup to give the car the aggressive look i'm going for...hate the ugly wheel gap.

    I'm thinking about coilovers as well.

    mine have settled and the rear has no gap at all..but the front still has gap. most ppl don't notice but I'm digging the stance look these days so i want to go for that.

    the only reason i didn't go with coilovers is b/c at one point they were almost $3000....now you can get them for $900 or something...

    I did a small stretch on the front and rear tires, the wheels will sit perfectly flush once the car is lowered properly.

    Not sure where you got the 1.5-2 but the specs are front 1.4 rear 1.3. But even so I didn't think it even drop that much so I went with coilovers.
