Springs take time to settle, I would give it a few days if you just added the springs.

Great combo choice! Springs will take a few days to settle in and the car may get slightly lower as well.

I just drove 300+ miles and its not dropped any. So should I just replace the rear struts and leave the stock rear springs?

You're in the guts of things anyway...why not update the springs too?
I went with Dinan's 3...the ride is so much better now. This is how it should have
Performed out of the factory.

I don't want to do the rears because it looks low enough as it is and I had no complaints on the rear. So I replaced the struts only. Increased the stiffness of the rear and then put it in. (My kids prefer to take my 335 when we go out over the X1 because it feels like a sportier ride). My other issue was the speed bumps I don't want to be taking out the plastic shields going over them every day
