Did you drive the car after you installed them to let your car settle on them? Your car looks awfully high for racing springs, my OEM sport suspension was lower than that...

I had a Shop install my springs, They have been driven about 20 km's since installed. Those 18's not 19's btw.

I dont think the fellow fanatic that sold them to me would have shafted me, Perhaps they will settle some more, I'm rather happy with the ride height. I mean if they were installed incorrectly I would see one or two shocks being higher or lower than the rest but they are all about the same. I installed the rear springs and made sure they were seated correctly and the front a Shop did, Well its about 40km's to work and back tomorrow so when I get home well see.

Looks a bit too high for race springs. Take a few more pics after they settle

I agree with the others, sits more like H&R sport springs. Has it settled any since then?

Is there anyway to identify from the actual spring if its Race or Sport, They dont say either on them.
