Thanks for researching this for us newer megan owners. I am givng megan a call tomorrow.
Give Megan a call at (626)581-0988 and ask for Cyrus, drop my name and say MPG referred you to contact them regarding the new springs. They'll help you guys out, their customer service is top notch.

I know that I am a little late getting in on this tread, but....
For what it's worth, I bought a set of Megans used from a NAM member. I think they are the second version offered by them.

After a few spring choices, I settled on a 6" 440# front spring, as he did not include the 7" 8kg. Kept the 6kg in the rear.
Those are set to pretty much minimal pre-load. The front shock body, which seems really long given the piston travel, is screwed all the way into the sleeve.
With this setup, there are a few threads still left between the locking rings.

I can only get a finger width between the top of the tire and the wheel arch. That's about as low as I want to go, but it would seem that I could get the shorter shock body and go about 3/4" lower. Essentially eliminating the gap between the locking rings and the tire to wheel arch. The rears are almost tucking.

I would post pics, but I don't have any of that specific wheel area. Might have to do that for y'all.

I do have a question for the Megan owners. I have an MCS, sunroof, 6spd, no rear sets, and am having trouble getting the dampers adjusted correctly. I have gotten them to where the car is OK, but not great. Can y'all chime in and give your damper "clicks", so that I can get it tuned in before the Dragon coming up?

Many thanks!
