Guess maybe it is time for new ones.

Mine were put on at the end of May, they probably have about 400 miles on them at this point.

You didn't invite me to your party.

Damien, post a picture.

Also depends on strut perch as well. Different strusts are going to produce different drops.

I have BAT springs on my SVT,the corner of my bumper is about 5" give or take.I don't know if my koni's have any noticable effect on ride height.

The front of my car sits at 5" on both corners... Just installed the BAT kit 2 days ago. Wonder if it will settle down more (2 weeks) ?. Maybe not.

Yeah, it should settle about 1/2".I think that temperature has a small effect on the pressure in the struts therefore pulling the car down or pushing it up.That's completely speculation though.
