I agree. Go with some different springs. 7" up front does not allow for a full drop.

When I had my set of Megan's, I ended up with some Eibach, 6in semi-barrel, 440lbs. Left the rear 6kg alone....

I still have the 7" 428lb springs.

These will fit a lot of other coil overs that accept a 2.5" ID spring. Can be substituted for a light 8 kg/mm spring. More travel than a straight spring.
