laguna 2 high front end after new springs /shocks

Having a bit of a mare with one thing or another on my beloved lag 2 !

Anyway last weekend ( in the snow!) I replaced the rear suspension bushes and fitted a pair of KYB shocks and springs to the front after suffering a broken spring .

The top nut was torqued up after the car was back down on it's wheels and the springs are sitting against the stops top and bottom ,
but the car is sitting very high at the front end !

I have read some comments about it settling down ,but I have my doubts .

what have I done wrong ?

thanks in advance

Give it a run, wont take long for the backend to lift, and front end to drop.
If the parts are correct, then it will settle down

Thanks for the swift reply ,I have probably put around 40 miles on it so far and it doesn't look any different to me .

Hope you are right tho and it needs some more miles .

Not normally that many miles,,, How high is front sitting,
Its not because back end springs and shocks are weak, and thats why it looks so high at the front, ( backend is really down)

no , rear all ok , it's the front that looks like some jacked up monster truck .

The springs had laguna 2 laser printed on to them , but were cheap from Ebay . maybe thats my downfall here.
