no i just adjusted the spring perch because i wasn't sure if adjusting the strut would mess with anything related to the damper settings, plus the front ones went on at the same height as the previous owner had them and it sat perfect, however the back ones looked dumped but adding that piece helped probably over an inch for some reason and then i just adjusted the spring perch about another half an inch. Still with about room to go up another 1.5 to 2 inches.
i think most springs compress more in one side always because it has more resistance or because the spring rates aren't equal throughout the whole spring? but i could be wrong.
But anyways here is what it looks like now
