yer, the springs should like kind of screw in at the bottom, if thats ok i dunno, maybe you got lows instead of superlows? the shop gave u the wrong springs? does your car have IRS or soild axel?

Those with IRS with often sit higher at the back. I have lows on the front and superlows on the back and when parked it still sits higher at the back. When in drive though, you can feel the back drop down when you accelerate or go from park to drive and this corrects it.

Maybe go for ultralows at the back to counter this effect of the IRS.
