Theres a huge gap in the front compared to the rear. Maybe cut the springs a lil more. I take out the adjustable struts and run springs.

the shocks and struts shouldnt really affect your height its more about how it takes bumps turning etc. Your car doesnt look that high in your sig but that other pic looks like alot of room between your tires and wheel well... hmmm not exactly sure why the gap is like that, are the lowering spring both the same brand and lowering height? I.E. 1", 1.5" etc?
