If they are brand new springs - let them settle for a couple of weeks before you make any more changes.

Try 5 people in the car for a couple of trips to settle them a bit quicker.

And don't forget - the 35mm drop is from a NEW cars ride height.

Depending how old your car is - it may have already sagged on it's springs by up to 10mm so the drop you have will only seem to be 25mm.

I had them on mine the back never really came down at all tbh the front did tho left about an inch or so left to the tyre at the front. I got the back down a little bit further by releasing the pressure off the rear bushes sitting it back on the floor then tighten them back up while it's still on the floor.
