Default Something's wrong with my stock spring, 2000 Integra?

I just recently installed my stock springs back on my 2000 Acura Integra GSR and boy is the back high. I'm serious when i say the rear is high. the gap between the rear fender and the tires is 5 inches! i don't know if this is normal. The front seems fine but the rear just doesn't feel right, its way too high. I don't know if someone switched my springs with civic springs or something that i wasn't aware of. Can someone give me the stock gap measurements for the tires to the fenders for both the front and back?yeah, i install them myself and i know how to install and all that stuff, but i'm thinking that maybe my cousins or something might of switched one of my original rear springs with one of theirs because i remember it was color coded and the rear don't have any colors on them..hmm...the front looks right but my back car is just so high!!

call Acura...also, if you have low profile tires (and different wheels) they will give the rearend a 'higher' looking stance...( I can't imagine that the springs got higher, but you never know with metal...it does some funny things.

Did you do the install? The springs have a specific way to be "seated" within the shock end pieces. if you look directly at the piece (when it is out of the car) it should be pretty clear... but dont worry if you made the mistake its an easy one to make when you are trying to go fast and get the job done. my first instinct would be to check that, make sure they are seated correctly. Its just a gut feeling that is telling me they may not be. also- are you sure you put the rear in the rear and the front in the front? (springs)dont forget the front springs are made to carry much more weight--(engine, trans, etc). so look into that. these are both avenues worth exploring before you take it somewhere are pay someone to do it. good luck!

Make sure you did not install the Front springs on the rear and vise versa... Since there is more weight in the front the springs are stiffer..Also make sure you don't have Low profile Tires this will also make the wheel gap larger...
