coils on my 4th gen and the car didnt even drop?

like i said i put coils on my 4th gen but the coil sleeves and coil springs are off an ek civic. but i compared struts and they are the same size. now what i dont get is why didnt my car drop? i lowered the perches and the car did not move. looked like it was sitting on the bump stops...which were already cut in half btw. now the coil springs had a plastic hat to them im considering when i try next week to take that hat off and i was told that if you put the gold disk in facing the wrong way that it wont lower your car...but that was from the little ricer boy down the street. any help would be appreciated. and just to be clear the struts are the same size as the struts that they came off of. help?


ps sorry for the giant ass explanation.
