Rear Lowering problems!!!

So, I bought new shocks(stagg 4) and lowering springs( d2 racing) I installed the front ones first no problems , then I did the rear even easier to install, but when I took the car off the jack stands it seemed to me like I raised the car instead of lowering it. I honestly don't know what's the problem, I'm gonna reinstall them just to double check...  Shocked Any ideas or anything helpful? Thanks !

sometimes springs have too settle, had this problem with roomates old ep3 hatch, he had factory struts with skunk2 springs, after a few hundred miles the rear settled down. Not saying this is your issue, but just my experince on same kinda situation.  Cool

maybe you mixed them up and installed the back ones up front and the frond springs in the back? Or maybe they sent you the wrong springs?!

And I double checked and everything is fine it's just the rear springs

is there a way that the springs could be clocked in the wrong position, not setting in the seat of the upper spring cup?

I double checked everything I even took of the bump stops from the rear and it was still the same, the company is gonna send me a replacement tho so hopefully does sit right  Smile

Those are Da springs in the rear.  Read the last part of this install.
