As of this afternoon, the springs are on the car. I am waiting to take more pics and measurements once the springs settle a little bit. I also want more driving time to solidify my ride/handling impressions.
I know how it feels to wait for info, so I'll divulge the following for now. The initial drop, measured immediately after the car came off the lift, was only 1/4" in front and 1/8" in back. I was a little disappointed, but not terribly surprised, by that. Based on my past experience, I expect them to settle a little more.
You can see pics of the R with the new springs and new wheels (I'll also have pics with the old wheels in my writeup) in my build thread. For reference, these pics were taken within an hour after coming off the lift.
All disappointment vanished when I drove the R with the new springs for the first time. I do not kid or exaggerate when I say that I would buy these springs all over again, even if they didn't change the ride height at all. This suspension was clearly designed to work with these springs. More later.
