Default Hieght / Vs / Air =

hey i just hit somthing and my car got lowerd and hit the floor. I checked the springs etc suspension, they were just fine so i put the springs down to the third slot in my shock tower. the back of my car was like 1 4th of an inch and it rose to 3 4ths of an inch on the front. So is this fine? Because i dont want to see the cars wheel lift up when im turning right/ or left. Tha-nks

what kind of car is it? if it's pivot balls equipped, check if they are bent. there's a lot of factors you can check. just make sure that everything is still straight (pivot balls, screws holding the shocks, etc.) good luck!
