Default '93 ride height query

I have had the rear springs on my '93 replaced with KYB as one had broken. The rear ride height now looks far too high to me but I can't find anything about what it should be. I've found an old post for a MkIII which has a measurement from the centre of the rear wheel to the wheelarch lip at 14" to 15" - mine is 17.5". Is the MKIII ride height similar to my '93 - I'd be very grateful if anyone who has a '93 or '94 could measure their ride height and let me know what it is.

The springs were fitted by a highly reputable garage so I doubt there is anything wrong with their work [I don't know if its possible to fit them so the ride height would be too high?] and it looks as though the springs are at fault. Does anyone have any experience with KYB - I was told they were a supplier to Lexus - or could they be for a later model?

Any advice gratefully received as at the moment I'm looking at buying a pair from Lexus.

as you stated, your shop may have sold you later model KYB shocks. 95-00 shocks are slightly longer. your springs may not be the culprit here. try to double check the part number.
