Thanks everybody ... I love the new set-up, and I think I've gotten used to the Barton feel/sound already ... I put about 80 miles on the car today and loved every one of them

Yes, definitely.
I'm sure I'll have more pics in another few hundred miles and by then maybe they will settle a little more.

Hopefully by then the car won't be covered in snow ... lol

Thanks for that idea ... I had no clue that that was an option ... lol

You have to look REAL hard from pics.

I'm curious if the OPs original intention was to drop it, then why not actually drop it significantly?

It wasn't

My intention was to get rid of the huge gap at the rear while getting a more level look.

These springs do that.

I'm happy with my purchase.
