    Ride height question

    i have an 02 SS with the 1LE package. about 4 or 5 moths ago my brakes went out and i slamed into a curb. i ended up having to get a new upper and lower a-arm and new bushings. the dealer wanted 1700.00 for it. so i did it my self and only spent 1400.00 plus labor. but instead of stock parts i ended up with BMR tubular K-member, and a-arms with all new bushings. the problem i have now is that my car sits about 1-2 inches higher than it did before the crash. is it something i did? how can i fix it. i have been thinking about getting it lowered but i dont wanna mess with the springs because then it wouldnt be the whole 1LE package anymore. what should i do? Thanks in advance for any help or advice.

    Did you get new springs and shocks or did you re-used them?

    Did u install these parts yourself? If so did you make sure NOT to fully tighten your control arm bolts until the car is sitting on the ground under all of it's own weight? this may be the problem, the a-arm bushings are probably binding and not letting the suspension sit correctly. I hope I'm not to late with this comment or maybe u fixed it already???
