You would think...but it is not that bad actually. I think that the assumption is that when you are racing or autocrossing...the weight shifts from the rear to the front, when braking hard before a turn. Too low of a drop in the front and you will be dragging something down there. Remember this is only springs so we dont have dampening rates on the shocks to control any weight shifts, compression, or rebound.

If you are looking for a level/even lowered look, then you might want to use coilovers versus a spring only drop. That way you will be able to fine tune things a bit easier.

Using the Tanabe GF210 springs, with the 285/35 in the rear...I cant get even a finger in there straight. The front is barely 2 fingers of a gap. Maybe 1.5 or so assuming you stay with a 245/40 front tire. Though...I am on 19's.

Hope this helps a little.
