'Lowered' my evo sporting..

A few months back i fitted the Eibach Sportline lowering springs, which state the drop should be 45/35mm. They have dropped the car by 10/15mm so i'm quite disappointed. Anybody else had this issue or had some good results from lowering? thinking of getting some cheap coilovers instead..

It's because the car by standard is lowered by 20mm, so buying lowering springs for 45/35 will only lower the car by 25/15.

I thought I'd allowed for that but still isn't enough! What springs have other people used?

Usually for getting the arch just on top of the wheel a lot of people use pro lines.
