Well, they sort of explained it to me. They said its fine now and good to go.

Apparently, since the spring is shorter (h&r race springs), the spring moved out of place from whenever I lift the car up by the jack points. The spring decompresses as I move it up in the air, so when I lowered the jack it must not have grooved into the top hat and I wouldnt even notice it happening.

I was told to jack up by the control arms from the spring ever from it moving out of place. A piece of metal cannot expand without being heated up. Its obvious why the guy at the front desk is working at this pepboy looking shop instead of a dealership. The mechanic knew his stuff though.
