Also if the lower control arm was just to tight and holding the car up then when I removed the front shocks the car shouldn't bounce up and down so freely cause it was just very bouncy without the shocks attached.
The springs might be bouncy while the LCA's remain bolted firmly and immovable themselves. Raise the front, loosen the LCA bolts to just barely snug and lower it back down. Then drive it around the block and see what happens. If that brings the front down where it should be, don't forget to tighten those two bolts back to spec while full vehicle weight is on the tires.

The front coil springs are too tall for your car.

I see one thing the shop did was "check riding height."

They checked it alright. Verified that the ride is indeed high. Like Snoop Dogg high.

Someone said post some pics with the wheels off. I second that. Get us a good shot of the coil spring perches.

They kinda look like the stock spring were reinstalled. Clocked wrong or replaced would definitely introduce more variables....

Yes they are the same stock springs that were on the car and I used new rubber for them plus made sure they were seated back properly. I was aware of that being a issue if they were not back in their proper orientation with the ends against the stops.

I spoke with the alignment shop and they said bring it back and they will gladly check it out and see what might be amiss.
