I used 280 stuck tower mounts in the rear to raise the back up to bring the car level.

Sorry for chiming in late, but here's another option for your consideration....

 

Rather than lifting the rear with the taller strut mounts in the rear, lower the front by replacing the stock strut mounts with camber plates.  Might have to do a little fabrication to get the stock spring hats interfacing correctly with the camber plates.  You wont' be able to take advantage of additional negative camber because your stock spring hats will hit the strut tower, but they should definitely lower the front end a decent amount (1 - 1.5").

 

Disregard all the above if you're happy with your current setup!  :-)

You've got the springs installed backwards. Swap them front to back. Had the same issue last year.

So does 001 go to the rear now? I have 001 in the front and it is high.

I called Eibach to confirm that 001 goes up front, and 002 goes on the rear. The Eibach tech didn't know why the front lifted... He said they make them special for a distributor (MSA I pressume).

I am rather annoyed, and haven't gone back to that aspect of my car. I will eventually call MSA and ask what the deal is.
