That is about how low the car should sit. Take a look at the pictures of my car on the website. You will see my car sits at the same height. As for shocks, if you are running HDs, get Sports or Koni Yellows. You will ruin your HDs very quickly. I would also suggest that you make sure you have the correct rake. I have not measured mine recently, but I try to keep stock rake. When I was running Bilstein Sports I ran the rear end higher because that helped get the rear end loose since the rear Bilstein sports are valved too softly. I then put in the Konis and found that with the rear that high the car was very very loose. I lowered it back down to stock rake, or as close as I could get it and the car handles like a dream. If you need this weekend I will measure the height of my car.
