If you didn't measure such a small difference (1/4"), would you really notice it? When you're driving around, your own weight and that of any passengers will change things a bit from there. I'm a little concerned that perfectly levelling the car out will end up making it look like a mild "tail-dragger".

Firmer springs don't have to ride harshly as long as they're not so low that you're getting into the bump stops a lot more frequently. Beyond that, harshness is more commonly associated with design choices in shock/strut damping curves.

'10 LGT 6M (hers) and an '01 Maxima 5M (spare)
