did you just install them? if so you need to let them settle for a bit. orrr you may have installed them backwards.

Springs don't settle.

Now, if the bushings weren't correctly clocked, then they can slowly shift over time, as the extra stress of being ran out of position stretches / tears them.

They both look equally level to me. The front fender opening is larger than the rear, and a level car will always have more gap up front.

your cousin car is on a down hill street so his front end looks lower and your car rear end is on the drive way so your rear looks lower... ?

The age/condition of your shocks has ZERO effect on ride height. You could put a blown shock in place, with all fluid inside removed and it'll sit exactly the same height as a brand new out of the box shock.

I don't see a significant difference in height on those two cars. Between different locations and different wheels you can't judge from those pics, imo. And from my experience most lowering springs will lower the rear a bit more anyway. With such a front heavy car (FF) you usually want to lower the rear a bit more in an attempt to gain some front/rear weight balance.

x2. shocks do nothing for ride height.

also the rear wheel well opening is slightly smaller than the front, giving the illusion. look at a new 3 series bmw for another example.
