    I just installed mine a week ago. The front sits exactly 3/4" higher than the rear. I've heard this is common with Mountune springs. Is this what you are referring to, or something else?

    Here's a pic for reference...mine's on the right...not the best pic but zoom in and you get the idea...don't mind the grumpy man in the background, just an ornery neighbor...

    How many miles are on your car? when I installed mine and again when I did the Koni rears, I noticed that the rear upper spring isolator is a hard rubber. However, it looked like my stock spring had made such an indentation and wore through enough that it may be causing the rear to be a tad lower than expected. I planned on buying new ones and replacing them to see if this evened out the drop, but I'll be rolling over to Bilstein Coilovers so I won't have the opportunity to test.

    I thought of this because when I was tinkering in the 2010-2012 VW GTI/CC world, their spring sets also had a minor sag in the rear and that was fixed by replacing the upper spring perches with a slightly thicker and slightly denser Audi TT pad. So just a thought on that.

    Is yours sagging in the rear or just hasn't settled beyond the 1/4" drop?

    So today I measured one of friends bone stock 15 st and his an my car are exactly the same height in the front. 13 inches from center bore to the lower of the fender and mine is lowered.
    Beats the heck out of me. I feel the 17 struts have to be different. I did order some h&r springs so we'll see how that goes

    I'm sagging in the rear too, but it has nothing to do with springs...
