This assumes everything was done right by everyone. What I meant by not letting it settle, to be clear, was when you lower a car off of jacks and do not roll it back and forth some, the suspension is not settled to actual ride height. If for example he just let it off the jacks, and measured then, it would seem high. I am not saying he did that but if he did it would explain some of this.
Got it. For me, the term settle would be driving it for a a few weeks to have the spring get use to the weight. I can tell you this as I did each corner, after the car was dropped off the jack, I took it around the block. So in regards to your term, yes, I did settle them in...
