I don't think you will get one inch lower in front.

I have the same shocks and springs on my 1999 ///MRoadster. Lowered all the way down to the bottom get you will end up a hair lower in front then stock and about an inch lower in the rear then stock.

Don't worry about lowering, get the car corner balanced. This will cost about $100.00 and is well worth the effort.

I recommend that you set the rear shocks at the midrange.

Buy a nice flat needle nose pliers to adjust the shocks in front. I'm told that turnning the wheel all the way left and right will make more room for adjustment. The adjuster supplied will not fit. Set the front shocks on soft the ride will pass the wife test. Set on hard in front the car handles great at autocross.

Its a great suspension modification and the car handles great. The dive and squat will be gone!

Plan on about four to six hours work. Good luck

Lester
