New coilovers fitted - does this look right?

Hi all,

I've just had some new BC coilovers fitted. The garage has set the ride height and geo for a fast road set-up (not corner weighted), but as you can see in this (not great) photo, the car sits much lower in the rear arches than the front which concerns me a little.

Now i'm not sure if this is just me, but other Scooby's I see driving around (and photos on the forum) generally appear to have a similar gap between the arches at the front and the rear, as have other cars I've owned previously, and very few are so low at the back that the rear wheel is inside the arch.

I know this is not a very specific question, but does this look ok? Am I worrying about nothing or should I get the garage to have another look at it?



Thanks for any advice.

Ride heights I have been advised:

measured from the centre of the wheel to the top of the arch

front 355mm
rear 335mm
