That's disappointing. It's still obviously lower than stock, and should handle very well (hopefully favorably compared to BC coilovers). Most of the photos I've seen actually look pretty decent, but I guess I'd have to see it in person to know for sure. Oh well, the higher it is, the more suspension travel I'll have.

One thing I don't like about the RCE/KW/etc coilovers is that you lose travel if you lower the car. This doesn't seem ideal. I guess it depends on how much travel you start with though. Maybe it still ends up being more travel than BC/ISC/Fortune/etc.
