new struts & tein h tech's ugly wheel gap!

my car was already lowered but i needed new struts bad! so i bout this set up (tokico dspec struts and tein H tech springs) took it in to get installed and it jacked my car up like an inch and a halft in the front from where it was before which was where i want it, for the rear well they couldnt install the rears because the spring didnt fit the stock upper mounts... im in a delema now what should i do?

What year are the springs for? The rears are different on 02-03 compared to 04-07. If you bought 04-07 springs they don't fit the 03 top hats. Just get 04-07 top hats and the springs can be used.

Also what year struts are they? Same for the rear struts as the rear springs they are different. You can use 02-03 struts with 04 top hats if you use this spacer Scooby921 Strut Spacers Turn In Concepts

they are tokico dspec struts , i got an 03 and thats what the box says for the springs unless they messed up and put the lot # for 04 springs in with an 03 box lot # who knows.. but the fronts fit fine and i like them alot. would pillowball mounts give a lower stance over the stock tophats?

As far as I can tell the D-specs are made for 02-03 only.

What I am finding is:

04-07 part# TEIN SKS60-BUB00

02-03 part# TEIN SKS34-BUB00

Do you have 34s or 60s? If the part # matches for 02-03 I'd call the vendor and tell them you got a mislabeled part.

As I said above if you have the 04-07 springs you can use the spacer I linked to and use your struts with those springs. You'll also need 04-07 top hats for the rear.
