CXRacing coilover installation gone...weird

Hey guys. First time poster, long time creep (obligatory new guy opener).

I got my coilovers in yesterday and was super stoked to get em on. Everyone seems to like their cxracings. So I went through the arduous (despite everyone saying it's easy. It's hard) process of getting them on. Well I got the fronts on my beautiful MSM 5 speed with an LSD (I know. I know. It's incredible) at the absolute highest setting that they would go and I'm telling you now...it dropped it by about 2 and 1/2 inches. Not all the stoked. It's rubbing like crazy. Probably undriveable.

I'm wondering. Is there something that I did wrong? Or is that literally the highest it goes? I need at least another half inch of clearance preferably 1 full inch.

Any info would be great. It's also on the highest dampening and the spring is tightened in just enough to secure the spring without loading it too hard. Could I mess with this setting a bit?
