My 300E gained height!

Hi guys,

I just finished rebuilding the sub frame, 8 links, 4 sub frame bushings, 3 differential bushings, 2 wheel bearings, bushings on both lower control arms.

Now I noticed the gap between the tire & the quarter panel is noticeably larger!

I kept the original springs, why the height gain?

Any thoughts?

Did you tighten the bushings with the weight on the wheels?
