Gaz Coilovers

Currently i've got group n bilistein with eibach 40mm springs but have just bought some Gaz coilovers.

This is how the car sits currently.

The rear sits quite level with the front.

Am i right in thinking that to gain the best handling you need to be nose down with the back being 10mm higher?

should i be thinking about staying the same height at the front and raising the rear or lowering more on the front when i fit the gaz?

its best to have the rear raised a bit more than that.
but its easier to lower the front.
but then you'll damage your car when go over speed bumps.
its a compromise between style, performance, monies and effort.
