    mine as well. also the springs feel stiffer. my thought is the angle of the shocks has changed. maybe the bottom of the shock mounting position on the lower a-arm was moved inward slightly. this would angle the a-arm downward more. thus pushing the car upward.

    Maybe being lighter in the front would raise it up a bit too.
