Default Tuftruk TTC 1210L rear lowering

Put this spring kit on the rear of my 2011 CC a couple weeks ago. Rides really well. Every bit as good as stock and looks really good being closer to level. Just figured I'd give a little feedback as I've had some bad experiences with lowering springs in the past. I didn't get all of the 2" advertised though. It ended up dropping the rear 1.5". Mine now sits at 36.5" in the front and a little over 38" in the back. Started out at 39.75" in the rear. I'll try to post up some pics this weekend.

Sits at 36.5" in the front and right at 38" in the back now. Started at 39.75" in the rear so I got right at 1.75" drop in the rear...

I was wanting it a little closer to level but it's close enough for now. Can't tell any difference in the ride either which was a surprise to me. I got the 4x4 because I have a major hill to climb by my house and in the winter it's only 4 wheel drives gettn up it.

I did the same springs on my 2wd and only saw about 1.25" of drop and yes it def rides as well as stock. I called Ottomax and talked to them about it. Apparently the kit was designed off of the 4wd springs.
I also reused my factory shocks. did you have to shim up the kit shocks?

What are the chances you still have your factory rear coils? Could you pull the p/n from them?
