Z3 Headache

Hope all are well in thee trying times and hope you remain so.

I am hoping that one or more of you might be able to help with a Z3 headache I am suffering. I own a 97 Z3 1.9 140bhp roadster, Right hand drive as I am here in the UK,

I recently had to replace the rear coil springs due to one being broken. The repair went reasonably well until I lowered the car back down. The ride height is about 7" from the top of the rear left tyre to the wheel arch and 6" on the drivers side. Looks interesting but not right. I have rechecked to ensure I have the right parts, but try as I might the back end just sits high. Im new to this and may have made a simple error.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be very welcome. I have attached a picture to show how it sits currently.

Something is wrong for sure. I would say wrong springs or not seated properly.
