How's the ride quality after the switch?
It’s been great! I was worried before installing that I would get a bouncy ride but that’s not the case at all. It’s almost as if it’s the stock springs. Feels really great and recommend them. An alignment is needed after the springs have settled. Maybe 2 weeks after.

Have you noticed any running after hitting bumps? Only asking because I’m thinking of lowering my k5 but I have 3 kids wondering if they will make is scrape 😂

I’ve only had 2 adults in the back seats for about 2 long distance drives and I was worried about rubbing. After hitting a few dips on the freeway I was surprised that I did not here any rubbing or bottoming out. I think you would be good with the kiddos

Does it look like the back is lower in person? I know it could be an illusion of fender arches, but I want it to look similar back to front.

Yes that look bothers me so much! But it’s due to the front wheel well being larger then the rear. I’m going to eventually replace with coilovers

tyree97 and anyone else;

I just got my M&S springs... I am getting ready to install them but I have a question about the sway bar links. Did you have to get new sway bar links? If so what did you order and where?

There shouldn't be any need to get new end links. Considering the drop is only a little over an inch, the oem end links should work fine.

Would you mind measuring from the bottom of the center cap to the top of the fender? I also got M&S springs and I don't think mine is as low as yours.
