It will depend on the spring you used ... but my 32 steel Roadster ( with steel fenders ... ) dropped about 1 and 1/2 at the beginning and settled on down to almost 2 inches after a few thousand miles. I have a TCI front spring. My car has aluminum heads, intake and water pump.

I would not want it any lower ... every now and then the front tires will rub the fender brace ...
