Springs installer wrong

The dampers are Bilstein sport, the springs are some kind of sport version by BMW(30% stiffer than original). The only difference is that one pair is thicker(the diameter of the metal the springs are made of) than the other. I put the thicker ones, ergo the stiffest pair, in the front. The springs are all the same height.

Yes. You put them in backwards. Happened to me too! Longer springs in the rear.

Is the engine, battery, and everything that goes up front installed in the car? If not, it could make a difference in front height. I notice the rear bumper is on, but the front one is not. That's more weight missing from the front.

Yes, it is all in the front. The bumper is EU, and weighs less than the US type. Guessing 15 lbs including brackets and all.

There are no long springs, but one pair has one more coil than the other
