So an update...

I've had the Eibach's replaced with H&R's and here are the comparative measurements. (I didn't bother measuring the original stock suspension as they were shot)...

From bottom of arch to top of rim in mm

Eibach H&R Diff
REAR 102 97 5
FRONT 120 113 7

Front is still 16mm higher than rear with H&R's

So the H&R's compared to the Eibach are are 5mm lower on the rear and 7mm lower on the front. However, the front is still 16mm higher than the rear.

Any suggestions on how to lower the front a little more? Can I tweak anything else, like mounts or anything? I don't want to higher the rear.

How are you taking your measurements? ground to wheel arch?

Hi Dave,

No, arch to top of rim, which still identifies the front is 16mm higher

I would put a few miles on them and see if it settles
