And this is AFTER driving the car around to let the suspension "settle back down" per say.....? If so, then something doesn't sound right. I've had the Eibach kit on my car and it did indeed lower the back. Granted not as much as the front, but it did lower it.

I'm not sure what to tell you then. I guess check the numbers on the actual spring to make sure you have the correct ones. I know it sounds stupid, but recently I had a customer receive two different springs for the rear of his car.

That doesn't look right. I would search the forum, I recall seeing Eibach pics on a GTR. If you give up and want an alternative...go with Swift, I love them and there is no "rake" and the car sits at least 1.5 inches lower and the ride is better than stock!

.....Holy shit....well okay then.

I could be totally wrong, but maybe it's cause you're running a 20 series tire on the back.....which is giving you the appearance of more wheel gap then oem. If you're looking to "tuck" or "flush" your large tire/wheel combo, springs aren't going to work. I think even going with the Swift springs (sit lower then Eibach) you would still have wheel gap issues in the rear. IMHO, if you want your car to have a nice stance, you need to go with a coil over set up.
