I just changed from the 12" used 88 (ARD) springs to a pair of new Mogg # 6556 13.75"
So I had about 2 maybe 3 inches of space in the wheelwell with my 12 inch springs, now I just measured 5 inches.
Keep in mind that 1" difference at the coils becomes about 1.5" (I forget the exact ratio) at the wheels. It's not
1 to 1.
And that's not even taking into consideration that the new springs might be stiffer
than the replaced ones.
Did you get the springs positioned correctly so that the end of the coils sat in the little "pocket" of the lower control arms? If not, that would add to the height as well.
