are the upper mounts set in the perch right? sometimes the mounts can move (because the lower springs are shorter then stock) and when you let the car down, they can no seat in right, so the car sits higher then if the spring was in the upper perch right.

thats all i can think of, unless they sent you the wrong rear springs...

you might also want to let them sit in for a day or two if you are still stuck without an answer, when we put new springs on my buddies car, it took 2 or 3 days for the car to finally settle down to its new height.

...Hi...
I knew you had them on backwards as soon as I saw you say, "no the front springs arent in the rear and vice versa". LOL

car rides great it sticks in the turns and isnt harsh over bumps

the front is a little high but will come down when ever i get the LS in there
