so it lowered the front more then the back. got a speaker box and a half a tank. . looks perfect. and it did not bounce when I turned a corner or when i went over a dip. the stock springs bounce when I had two skinny kids in the backseat or when I go over bumps also with the stocks i was able to take the 110 north to the 105 west on a 460° turn at 50 mph with these cheap lexani 235/35r19 tires. i will check The handling with the new springs at a different time.

thats the only picture i had. The front had lower an inch and a half but the back stayed at the same hight. which was OK because with the speaker box, an a full tank of gas and people in the backseat the back was lower than the front. The front became to bouncy, and was much lower than the rear, so I put the original Springs back on the front and left the eibach springs in the rear. my car rides so much better now.

Thanks for the sideview photo. I wanted to see how much lower it looks compared to stock springs. Inner fender linings in the back wheels are about an inch distance to the inside of the wheels on the '22 Forte GT so I have been hesitant to lower the car... I hate tire rubbage... lol 😅

i was terribly wrong and dont recommend the kit i bought
Your picture shows the springs to be different lengths -unsprung...but I learned long ago that the installed spring's height is determined by the spring's stiffness and it is apparent that your ride height pretty much stayed the same.

If I had a Forte with a twist beam, i would most likely try these.

Or these
that extra loop on the blue ones might do the trick. and what about shocks and struts
