[DML] Eibach DMCH Kit

Just installed my DMCH Eibach/DMCH spring shock kit yesterday. (I got it before the price increase)   Right off the bat I obviously noted the new stance of the car.  Being lower is kinda wierd as I have been so used my car's "normal" ride height.   It will take some getting used to.  Not in a bad way, just different. 
The first thing I noticed was that my nose no longer drifts up when accelerating.  It rode nose-high anyway.   It is now firmly in place.   2nd obervation is that cornering is tighter with less sway and it does feel quite attached to the road.   Feels almost like gliding on rails.  I took it on some back road here in Maine that are very rollercoaster-ish.  Nice swells with lots of curves.  It was quite a different ride. 
The adjustable collar is interesting.  I measured the front and it was 6" from the crossmember.  The rear was 5.5"  I adjusted the collars and brought the rear up a bit but then saw that I only had 1/4 tank of gas.  I'll remeasure when I get a full tank.   I also read that it takes a little bit for it to all settle in.    They are really hard to turn once installed. You need a pipe to make it longer for more leverage.  
I had a local guy install the kit.  It was pretty straight forward.  I was able to work with him on the install so I could learn more about my car.
