today installed my shocks and IE spring (stage 1), took the car for aliment at wheel work guy told me cannot do it because:

front spring is shorter than rear ...... I told his is like that!

because the front spring is short, has a gap and spring does not seat on housing??

was installed the same way stock was, did I miss something/do I need to add any part to compensate the shorter spring?

Help are welcome

You did not miss anything. The springs are too short and don't shit in the perch when jacked up off the ground. I put some PCV tubing over the ends of the springs and safety wired in the bottom to hold it in place. Then when I lower the car down, I carefully guide the spring into the top perch. Once lowered the spring will sit nicely in the perch.
