We're the struts the same length as what you took out? If the stoke is shorter on the strut then the ride height will be lower as well. Always match replacement parts with the ones you are removing, you never know they could be mislabeled.

Thanks for the response. Yes the struts were the same length.

Check the location of the lower spring perch compared to the ones you took out. If they are in the same position then something is missing. Pic is a general view
