It's a 2in drop spindle with qa1 coil-overs. It's actually to low in the front, I have an inch of ground clearance with the headers.

I'm about to install that exact setup in my car. Couple ?'s How much did the springs compress when on the ground and how hi (or low) is the spring adjuster on the shock body? A pic would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Jerry

Haven't measured it yet, but the adjuster is at the bottom of the shock body. QA1 said I could go up another 2.5 inches without affecting my rebound.

Did you reinforce the arms for those coilovers? I'd hate to see it tearing up the arms from all that force in such a small area.
