Suspension noob needing help

I just attempted to install the RD chassis kit. The front install went fine, then I did the drivers side rear and something just doesn't seem right. Refer to photo:

While lifted...


lowered the jack...


Did I miss or forget something?

Wild guess...did you use a non-EDC kit on an EDC car? I understand the shock shaft stem (as described in these threads http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=621537 http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=621751) is skinnier on non-EDC cars and you can retrofit the other shock mount, if necessary.

I appreciate the info, and yes I have EDC and the kit is for non EDC so this was exactly the reason the shock shaft wasn't fitting correctly.

I was actually thinking about just not installing the rear, doesn't look too bad. I'm guessing it'll throw off the handling so probably not a good idea.

Just the fronts installed





Before, HATE the huge wheel gap.






Will post better pictures with the rear installed.
