I dont know too much about them but maybe someone would be able to tell you if they will get lower with breakin time,, don't know, i would say to take them off and sell them on here to save for some coilovers,

I have H&Rs and they will settle a little bit in the front. If you don't want any gap at all, then you will not be happy with the H&Rs. They do handle really well. You might not notice how much of a drop it is right now, but you will definately notice when you see a stock Altima. Peace

With all the springs for the Altima the front always looks higher. It's not actually higher in the front, it's just that the front wheel wells are bigger. If you want the gap to be the same all the way around, you need coil overs. Peace

I can't believe people are STILL having trouble with this "front is higher than the back" thing. :rolleyes:

TRIM THE DAMN BUMPSTOPS IN THE FRONT

Shit.... :D

I don't think you know what you're talking about. The front is always higher than the back unless you have coilovers or have cut the springs.
Excactly. And part of the reason is cuz the wheel wells larger to accomodate the turning tires in front.

Also, if u look in the factory service manual, it even says the front's higher than the back.

I have Intrax, and it isn't that noticeable with stock rims, but when I have my 17's on it is noticeable somewhat, the front is higher still, that's why I'm getting coilovers. I was thinking bags but coilovers will be a hell of a lot cheaper.

my H&Rs didnt settle worth shit. face it..it doesnt look lowered.
cutting the bumpstops wont lower your car. you have to cut them in half i think when you put in springs but that will not effect the ride height. the bumpstop is only hit when your car is about to bottom out.
