I just installed the Dinan front springs to compensate for the slightly higher ride height after installing Bilstein HD shocks. The car looks great, much more aggresive and the initial turn in response is better too.

There is a slight imbalance in the spring rates as the rear is softer than the front but eventually I will disable the HLL and replace with Bilsteins and higher rate springs on the rear as well.

Bainbridge Island, WA

The front of my car looks too high (tyres don't fill the wheel arches) but the ride height is actually correct according to Bentley. Could I lower the front only (as the rear looks fine) say 1" or will this screw up the steering geometery (by effectively reducing the castor angle)?

Any ideas or experience?
