it may be shorter because the front springs condense more b/c of the weight of the engine. there is not as much weight over the rear wheels compared to the front wheels.

but you may have got the wrong part... idunno

Hotchkis lowers the rear more than the front so that you get a more level suspension (the stock suspension puts the celica higher in the rear).

Double check and make sure the spring is sitting correctly in its perch.
