Installed the eibachs with the ww mod on the rear, and it doesnt seem to have dropped at all...if anything it looks and measures HIGHER then the side i havent done yet.......do they need time to settle or did i do something wrong

let it settle...

when i lowered my lighting pickup it took a week and then it settled out

if you wanna hurry it up throw some tube sand bags in the trunk and get some fattys from the local bar to ride around with you for a while

i did that with the Lightning(the sand part at least)

Could this be due to the self-leveling shocks?

I believe the WW mod ships with the GC Kit. From what I understand it basically raises the top mount point to fool the self leveling shocks into lowering.

I think it lowers the mount point.......so the self leveling shocks have a smaller space to adjust.

The GC kit comes with the spacer to "fool" the Nivomats. Here's what they look like...

Where can you buy the GC Kit? Also are they easy to install?

The WW (and GC) spacers simply lower the upper mounting hat in relation to the shock. The shock still operates at it's normal height . . . it's simply mounted higher in the car. The GC kit also has similar spacers in the kit, as it's the only way to get nivomats to allow the rear to lower. Basically, you remove an existing 1" rubber spacer that's below the mount, and replace it with a 1" spacer, but put it above the mount. You can make your own if you want, out of simple washers. The complete writeup for lowering nivomats , with dimensions, is over at Reeds FAQ, as is the GC writeup.
