Default suspension problem and questions

so just under a year ago i installed h and r super sports in my mustang. stock struts,shocks (i'm starting to regret that) and all the bushings, etc...

my problem is that the back sits slightly lower than the front. i've tried on several different surfaces and in the front i could fit 3 fingers from the tire to the wheel well, on the back, i have to jam them in.

my guess, since it's such a minute difference, i could have just worn out the isolators and the bottom/top of the spring could be poking through, giving it that slightly noticeable difference in height.

i'm also curious as how to go about raking my mustang. there's a guy that has a white 01 gt with aftermarket 17' svt cobra rims and it's raked nicely. i don't know the guy (i don't even know if it's a guy) so i can't exactly ask what he has done to it.

i'm not looking to tuck tire or anything, just lower in the front than in the back, subtle but noticeable. i'm assuming i'd take out the front iso's top and bottom, leave both back in? take out top or bottom in front and leave one pair in back for slightly less rake? is there any other way?

If you were to put the factory springs back in the rear that would raise it back up a bit. Would that be be much? Rear coilovers is another option?

the rear is slightly lower than the front. the problem is that it shouldn't be lower. it sat even when i installed them and only up to about 2 months ago when a friend mentioned it to me, i checked and for sure i noticed a difference.

the slight difference could just be because the side walls on the front tiers are different than that of the back ones.

anyways, i'm more interested in raking. is it just isolators, different size rims, coils?
