Competition Springs

How much lower is the competition springs compared to the non comp springs? i wanna lower the car for aesthetics...not necessarily for a performance improvement. I like the ride of my car and really dont want to upset that too much. The rear of the car is perfect, but the front has too much of a gap. Possibly thinking of putting comp springs up front and leaving the rest as is.

The competition springs are about 10mm lower. I have the KW HAS kit and love it.

ahhhh...i see. 10mm equates to about .4 inches. Probably not worth the hassle of switching them out.
