That's unusual. Definitely SL's all round?

Post up a pic of how the car sits.

Yes, verify height first, a nice flat concrete slab is good.

If it is lower at the rear and there is no good reason, maybe rear coil spacers.

Mate you could get the Ultima shortened shockies off ebay for 150, they should lower the front of your car a touch more. If that fails you might need to take half a coil off with an angle grinder*

*dodgy wahh wgaf, half a coil makes fuk all difference.

Do they have a different seat height or something? If not look at getting struts that have a different seat height as this is what changed the height, not whether they are shortened.

AFAIK the seat height is lower, though you'd have to ask em.
