i did it, (like many times before on previous vehicles)

and yes they were marked "Left" and "Right", the spring is sitting in it's correct housing too, any other ideas?

is the spring sitting in the correct place, my mate has a vt with the same thing and he said that his spring popped out when he went over the train lines heaps fast, dont know if that happens though?

A hell of a lot of cars sit like that.
Mainly because the spring makers make them to keep the car level.
The roads aren't flat they slope.

hit a kerb or something lately? You may have bent the shocker, this can cause it to take alot longer to retract causing the car to sit higher up.
