Ride height will 'settle' after a couple of weeks/couple of hundred miles usage over the height fitted fresh. May mean if you have adjustable spring seat rear dampers, you may need to tweak them to get the car level after a little usage.

Are you an rssoc member by the way? There's a series of articles I wrote in 2002/3 and have updated since, called Hot Hatch Hunter, explaining the merits and otherwise, of modifying a small scimitar. Covers all areas, brakes, drivetrain, engine performance and suspension.

Think there's a copy in the Members section.
