This is true. The car is also minus a lot of weight at this point as well. I can say however that after installing the spring on the driver side, the left side tire sits higher off of the ground at this point.
It was also easier installing the new shorter spring. The taller spring had to be "helped" into place where the shorter on had to be held in place until the rear was jacked up. The shocks were actually topped out with the taller springs. Tightening the shocks down actually lowered the car.
