Which springs did you get? It looks slightly higher in the front but could be just due to the angle.

People often say 2 inch is max for these cars without extreme modding, I'd recommend the pfadt drop kit for a 1.5 drop which is average

EDIT THESE SPRINGS DESTROYED MY FRONT SHOCK TOWERS AND REAR CAMBER PLATE BUSHINGS GOT PUSHED OUT. DO NOT BUY JDM 2 INCH DROPSRINGS!!! I'm now running 1.25 drop springs from hotchkis and they fixed all my problems.
