Do you how much of a height difference does top mount from facelift shocks with bearings add, compared to the perfacelift ones without top mount bearings. Maybe thats the issue why lowerings springs from older model dont drop the car as much as it suppose to. Here is the reference pic. You can see the difference it top mount assemblies betwwen older and newer GG/GY chasis. (number 16 in the old one, and 22-25-26 in the new one). Looks like this 25 "plate" doesn't allow car to drop lower.
