Saloon (Sedan) Tein springs on sportx?

Right after doing muchos searching on the forum/internet, I know that saloon springs will fit the sportx but be a little lower in the rear.

But I can't seem to find an answer to my query which is if I use some Tein S techs for the Saloon on std shocks, will my arse end up lower than the front? As I would dearly like to avoid this. Has anyone fitted Saloon lowering springs to their sportcross? Did it sit nice and level?

Ta in advance.

Thats a peach of a stance! Thats settled that then Tein S techs it is. What are these Tokiko shocks I have been hearing so much about?
May spring for a set of those too.

those are the tokico

i'm happy with them, the complete set-up will probably cost about the same as low-end coilovers, but it rides pretty smooth considering how low it is. i'm actually running the adjustment at 3/5 but I think i'm gonna try a bit harder this summer.

Yes, the previous owner got involved in a fender bender... used sedan bumper as it was easy to do and cheaper/faster. I like it better too personally
