Hotchkis 2" lowering spring + DSE lower A-Arm

I put in hotchkis 2" lowering spring on my stock a-arm car and it sits about 4" off the ground, so its already a little too low. And I just bought SPC uppers and DSE lowers. Will the DSE lowers lower the car even further? If so, how much?

Either way, I think I need to bring it up an inch, can you please recommend some spacers that will fit the DSE lowers.

Thanks!

Re: Hotchkis 2" lowering spring + DSE lower A-Arm

Im running 17"s w stock spindles and the only reason I say its too low is my hooker headers scrape sometimes on speed bumps etc. I love the look.

Can anyone answer my question?

Sorry it took so long as well, I had forgot that I asked the question.

If no one knows I guess DSE will. I will call them.
