    I have umi 2" drop springs on the car now which sets it about an inch lower than the stock front. I would like it set even so what spring for one inch drop? I heard moog 5413 will get you inch. The car will be street and a little strip..

    I would measure the frame at the front and back of the C channel to make sure the car is lower in the back and it's not the design of the car making it look lower in the back

    I am wanting it to be even. The rear is about an inch lower than the front.
