Any strut that is already put together and ready to drop in will make your front ride height way high! Buy the strut and mount separately. Re-use your factory springs. Adds some steps but a shop can probably throw them together for you for very cheap.

thank you very much the problem is I already have installed them that ACDelco 930020 ready struts for this car it did raise the height it seems about an inch but I should of realize it because no auto parts stores sold ready struts for this car they will all just a strut and you had to install the spring do you think I could remove the spring and put the factory spring in this strut that I bought

maybe the ride height leveler can be adjusted if its a mere inch

if you buy a cheap spring compressor, it should be no big issue - nuts on strut towers, then connection to the nuckle/control arm - allignment, done
