I just installed UMI 2 inch drop springs in the back of my Malibu and I’m wondering if something’s wrong ... seem real low ...
I did not touch my front since I’m waiting for a compression tool to arrive.

Thanks !!

It does look lower than what 2" should give you , my Monte has UMI 2" rear springs.
This is with 28" tall M/T drag radials and 27.5" front tires

Nice Monte ! Wanna see a Malibu to compare apples to apples.

I had always heard people complaining it did not drop enough ...

It might come up some when you level out the front.

I think this set may have a problem ...

I read from another post that the 2 inch drop UMI springs are supposed to be around 13 1/2 inches and on this pic I just took there at 12 inches.

I inadvertently lied. Mine are 1” Belltech. They were 13” long. Stockers were 14-1/4”.
