~ no rubbing what-so-ever... even with the 13mm spacers in place.

Car looks good. Any rubbing problems with the rear spacers? I'm considering running 10mm up front and 13mm rear.

As it's been said, looks great.

What are your fender to ground measurements? I'm curious how well the H&Rs bring the front down relative to the rear.

~ the car ended up dropping more than what h&r quoted.

the front dropped 2.25" & the rear 2"

~ the general ride is great and nearly as normal...

but some rare crashing in the front with hard bumps with the factory shocks... for they can't keep up with the 2.5" drop in the front.

(looking for the B8's to be released (1/2015) to complement the springs and eliminate the issue).

I was not sure if your car was with DHP or not? You referring to the B8's confirms that you most likely don't have dhp. I was about to suggest going with the Dinan shockware if you had. Made a huge difference after the drop.

Give them a week or so to settle and yes it would be better to realign.
