hi there, i just got some used p1 springs and already installed in my gc6. problem is that i heard these spring give you a very good amount of clearance in the rear to balance it out with the front, and i saw many pictures about other members' rides and they look fantastic. however, my clearance is quite bad, i only have about 1 finger gap between the tire and the fender. just wondering why it sits soo low, and my front actually have about 2 fingers gap plus a little bit. anyone know the reason why my rear is sitting soo low? here's a picture of how the car is sitting now, not a good pic, but i will update more pictures later.

If it makes you feel any better my car looks the same (I'm running P1's also). Besides my tires rubbing every once in a while everything else seems to be fine. A great improvement over stock.

not the slope for sure.....i have seem them on the flat ground too....front is sitting higher compare to the rear. and i heard these springs should give you a even drop on both front and rear. but it doesnt seem like it in this case

Did the previous owner tell you which spring was which? Meaning driver rear or pass. rear? How many miles are on them?

My brother just put on some P1 on his RS (stock struts) and it was pretty much even all around.

how's the gap in the rear? how far apart are they?

yeah the new ones (blue) don't have the ass sag issue that the old ones did.


But seriously man your car looks great!!!

You're going to be one that notices it the most
