I can't imagine the ride being any more harsh!
I haven't even measured my height to see if it's the same both sides, mine probably isn't the same either.
I was parked up earlier and noticed with the Tein springs the rear sits a bit lower than the front.

Well I can’t really compare to be fair as I haven’t run the 18’s but the 19’s are pretty harsh, but like I said you get used to it and get on with it. Ain’t the Teins 15mm front 20mm rear. Is it noticeable, mine sits lower at front than rear, but lower on drivers side front. Yeah it’s looking for some I might not find, so get coils, but the price would wipe out my bank balance and put pay to the grill and rear spoiler till next year at least.

I love it when the lads sat in the back because it gives it the ride height I want, my only worry is if I get the 30mm and it sits even lower on the drivers side Id be taring what’s left of my hair out and theirs not much left.

The front always sits higher on most cars, coilovers are the way if you want it level.

I found the 30mm comfy but quite bouncy you'll catch the odd speed bump although saying that your on 19s so you might get away with it

I had spacers on the 18s with 30mm and they rubbed the arch

Yeah it's not that noticeable, I'll take some pictures of both sides on a level surface, the twins are 15mm front 20mm rear.

Hemmingway this is 30mm eibach with around 20mm spacers on OEM 18s on my first FN

That is how the drivers side front looks now and the rest higher. So that ride height to me in the pic is perfect. Could they have been the wrong spring placed in the total set, I know it’s a long shot. Now this is the quandary I’m in, do I pay another £180 out for 30mm and the drivers drop even lower or possibly get coilovers at £850🤔
