Eibach Sportline Ride Height

I had my sportlines installed around november of 2004 and I gave them a lot of time for the springs to settle. Now I noticed that the rear was a little higher than the front. So I measured the fender gaps using the "how many fingers can I fit between the fender and the tire?" measurements. For the front it is about a finger-and-a-half gap and in the rear its a good 2-finger gap. To me the rear looks higher like my car's ass is in the air. I was wondering if there was any way of lowering the rear a little further to even out the ride height. Here are pics:

um, you have stock wheels. if you get bigger wheels you will have less of a gap.

yeah, yours definately don't look right. Mine are noticeably lower in the back than yours. I'm assuming everything feels ok when you're driving? I'd get someone to check the install maybe?

Everything feels okay while driving but when I take the turns quickly, the rear tends to slip which caught me off guard. Everytime I take turns quickly the rear skids and you can hear my tires screeching. Think I'm gonna get it looked at soon.

Thanks for looking out thumbsup
