    you may have also put the fronts in the rear and vice versa, the fronts will have to deal with the engine weight hence the increase in height at the rear and decrease at the front..

    I know a few people that did this to RS escorts back in the 90's...


    Oh and i may have done this to one of my Sierra cossies but im not sure it was a long time ago
