    Did you debounce them once you lowered the car? basically put you body weight on the car and push down quickly, usually that settles the suspension a bit. Tokico makes good stuff, got em on both my hondas.

    hp struts and springs

    if you got the full hp struts and springs set then you want to check the springs and on them there is a code and at the end it say F for front and R for rear, check that because I made the same mistake when I had mine and it was raised in the rear and really low in the front. It's not hard to fix it will just take some time. hope this was helpful.
