Its hard to tell because the first pic was taken from higher up

Now that you take that into account you can tell, I guess I just wasnt looking for it. Nice.

The rear is always lower than the front when you lower with just the springs.
Shocks look at the KYB AGX's, they are decent for street. Looks good though.

I can think of 2 options to stop them from sagging. Attach them on like WRXs: i.e. drill 6? holes on each side, then get the clips to attach it properly. Or...

Clean everything REALLY well, finishing with rubbing alcohol. Then applying double sided tape along the length.

HTH.

got your side skirts, that's nice
clips can't hold them up, try double side tape which I didn't try when I was working on my side skirts.
