I changed old tired rear suspension springs and shock absorbers. Do you think it is not too high? Previously, the wheels gently hid behind the edge of the fender. As you can see, there is a lot of space, but it looks strange. As you think - much too much raised. I will add that 1 cm was pulled from the original.

This is definitely too high. Probably wrong springs were fitted?

Could be worse..... My 15" wheels combined with being on axle stands on the front produces this.....

they were my original ones, but they underwent renovation because unfortunately the + 1 + 2 passenger in the car caused more friction, creaking etc. After replacing the problem disappeared
