Are you sure you have the correct springs?
I have heard of people using station wagon springs if they want to go higher in the rear. Don’t know if they are available for your car. But if you just spent money on your springs you probably won’t want to buy another set.
Just throwing this out there- back in the 90’s I had a ‘67 Camaro ragtop and I hated the way the rear end sat low with stock springs. I bought a cheap set of Mr. Gasket shackles from Summit and raised the rear about 1.5”. Then I cut off the extra part of the shackle I didn’t need. I rounded them off with my bench grinder, painted them chassis black and nobody even noticed.
It didn’t change the ride quality and only cost $15!
