    Default incorrect parts supplied?

    after some advice after i replaced my front springs about 10 days ago but my c is sitting really high at the front
    according to the stealers the part number i required was 93190523 as my sri has the lowered sport chassis
    the company i used to get springs from sent me monroe shocks part number sp2801 , they assure me that they are correct part

    Everyone seems to report this
    However from your photo it looks like the rears have collapsed as well!

    I had my doubts as well, so compared my car to the original photos I took of the car and found this was fairly correct
    However I have to agree with your impression on your own car, it does look like something is wrong at the front

    i do agree with you that the rears look low however springs are unbroken on the rear!
    the gap between tyre and arch was 2 fingers before and now is 4 fingers, i have done over 200 miles since they were fitted and thought they may have come down a bit but no,
    i questioned the springs when i fitted them as they were about an inch longer than what i took off and to be honest i was worried this would happen

    The rear looks low for standard suspension and shocks wont make any difference to the height.

    How many miles has the car done as they may just be tired rear springs.

    The springs will also need to settle a bit.
