Put lowering springs on only dropped 1/2inch in front???

Put some intrax springs on my car and it slammed it in the back and dropped it like a half inch maybe in the front. The kit said 2inch drop all the way around. Is something in the front end possibly limmiting it or did i just get ripped on springs. Its a 93 5.0lx any help would be greatly apreciated

I know the intrax dropped my bird pretty low. I rememer hearing somewhere that if you lower your mn12, it will hit some sort of filter (or something?)..

Also, you're springs still need time to settle..

If the springs weren't lined up correctly on the strut bodies and upper mounts when they were installed onto the struts, it would have an effect on ride height. If that is the problem, they will probably settle into place.
