    The rear looks lower than the front.

    Yeah I realized that, but it handles very well and it feels leveled.

    Very happy, complete opposite of bouncy it's pretty stiff, I feel the bumps more but not to the point of being really annoying. It improved highway driving, the car feels more planted to the ground the wind doesn't push me around as much and it hugs curves, way less body roll too.

    Good to hear.

    Have you lowered other cars you've owned?

    It Looks good. It does look a bit higher in the front but it could just be the ground levelness its parked on. Id be interested to know your opinion after you've driven on it for a week or two. When I lowered mine my first opinion was that it was noticeably stiffer but comfortable. As I drove it for a few weeks over different road surfaces I could definitely feel how stiff it was compared to stock. Having said that a lot of the stiffness for me comes from a lower profile tire. I see a huge difference when switching from my winter tires with a taller side wall. I had also lowered my Nissan Maxima with eibach springs. Since it has a longer wheel base I could only slightly even feel a difference, but when it came to the overall look of it and the cornering there was no comparison. Mine on the Micra are H&R, which are known to be a bit stiffer then other brands but i guess every brand is engineered a bit differently. Happy travels

    somethings odd there......

    i wonder if the spring is SEATED in the perch ?

    The simple answer is the front springs are in the rear and rear springs in front, but i doubt thats possible to do
