What kind of springs. And did you or the mechanic torque the bolts down with the weight of the car on the ground.

Can you show some pictures.

Re: my car sits up to high in the front and the rear

I installed Hotchkis TVS with front and rear springs and sway bars and it does not seem any lower. I would not say that it looks too high but it did not seem to lower. It was installed and tightened with jack stands under frame rails. Should I put it back up with stands under rear axle and front a-arms to load them like they are on the ground and loosen/re-tighten ? If so, what bolts would cause a change ?

Most definitely. The A-arms and shackles also the sway bars.
