B&G Springs

Well, I put the B&Gs on my car today. I'm not sure if I did something wrong or not but I can't see how I could have. These things sit way too low.
I mean my car is so low I can't even accelerate hard because it's rubbing the back tires in the fenderwells.
My car doesn't have the bump stops in it due to a previous issue I ran into.
Does anyone have any ideas on how I can raise the back of the car some or should I just put my stock springs back on?
I know I have a lot of stuff in the back of the car but this is ridiculous.
I had to put some rubber spring spacers in just to be able to get it home.
I'll have some pics in the morning.
It looks awesome. I just wish I could drive it. LOL

B&Gs are the softest you can buy. if you have a lot of weight in your car, you're going to have a problem

The B&Gs I had had a lot of sag in the ass. They rode rough as hell too. I got a 2" drop almost immediately as well. Never cut or removed the bump stops though on any of my springs.

My car topped out at 140 miles per hour, this morning.
I need NOS. Two of the big ones, and I need it tonight.

how low was the front, Scoobs? how bad of a sag would you guestimate it would be if you didnt have stuff in your trunk?
