    If they are new springs they will take a while to settle down and get to their final drop.

    remember when fitting springs no matter how new or old they are they still need time to settle

    also 10mm lower and going to be much of a difference

    and also remember that it depends on how the makers rate the drop

    for instance eibach might rate the 30/50 drop on an SRI which is -20mm to start with i think

    where as the 60/60 might be rated on a -60mm drop on a standard mk4 which some manufacturers do

    1st pic is before (-30mm drop on 205/50 tyres).
    2nd pic is after (-60mm drop on 215/40 tyres).

    ONLY LOOKING @ REAR.
