Have done some research, and the stock rake (difference in height from front to back, as measured immediately behind front wheel and immediately in front of rear wheel, ground to body) is 3/4", in other words the rear measurement should be 3/4" higher than front. Mine measured 7 3/8" and 7 1/2", or basically flat. So I am going to move my spring perch up 1 or 2 notches in the rear if I can, to make about 1/2 - 3/4" difference. Apparently each notch raises car by 3/8"

Just curious at what height I should be at. I've had these on the car for about 18 months and have always thought it sits too low in back. The spring perch is on the highest setting, the trunk is empty and there's only a little gas in the tank. I read on one of the other boards some time back that Eibach had a batch of defective springs and am wondering if this could be the problem.
