Installed Megan Coilovers - Rear Spring Loose when Car is Jacked?

So I installed a set of megan coilovers and the rear springs are loose when the car is lifted... is this normal? obviously i dont want them to come out of place or anything.

Yes I've got the perch in that came with the coilovers. I'd still like to go lower. As it currently sits it's not any lower then being on cm springs.

Oh I plan on it . Really want some wheels as I'm on stock steelies with hubcaps. Steelies are rusted so don't want to take off the hubcaps. Thought about painting them white.

I love how your car sits Fitz! Would I be safe taking out a locking ring?

thnks! yea u'll be fine. idk much about megan's so im assuming they don't have adjustable struts. you could always put tow straps on the strut so it wont decompress as much and have the spring come loose
