I`ve found that most escorts tend to sit higher at the front than the rear, even if you drop it 60mm all round! the front will look a little higher than the rear, if you look at other examples on other posts where guys have posted pics you`ll see what i mean, mine is down 40mm all round but as you can see the front looks higher :unsure: hth

I'm not too fussed about the front looking higher aslong as the car is level ?

 

 

from personal experience Liam, on a equal drop all round on just springs the nose does not just look higher, it often is notably higher than the rear.

 

-35/40 its visable

 

-60 it cant be missed or ignored (seriously effects handling imo)

 

I originally dropped my old Si -40 on just gmax springs and it constantly looked like it was pulling away at full throttle even when standing still.

When I did a comparative measurement to standard springs the rear of the car was dropped 1" 1/4 more than the front.

 

I ended up chopping standard rears and having them heated, recoiled and pulled to get the level right again :rolleyes:

 

when I went for -60 I first tried springs on standard shocks to see the effect and it was more or less a exagerated effect of the -40's on standard shocks....obviously I ended up using aftermarket shocks and springs to get it right.
