Default Ride height change after Strange 12-bolt?

For those that installed a Strange 12-bolt, did you notice a change in ride height afterwards? I've seen Mosers that end up lifting the rear of the car ~1", but I haven't heard anything about the Strange 12-bolts. Just curious whether this is a Moser-specific "feature"...

It's Moser specific because of the thicker axle tubes

Thats the only thing I hate about my Moser. Fawking ride height! Now I have to find some different springs to lower it!

rodent,
Have you tried the garden hose mod to remove the spring spacers? That should bring you down some in the rear.

No, haven't tried that but I heard it makes a 1/2" difference. I'd like to lower it a full inch to match the front. I went and ordered some BMR springs yesterday.
