Clare, how long since you have changed the springs? if its recent then it may get a bit lower as they need time to settle, plus if your going to increase the wheel size then it will look much better.

Did you change them yourself or get it done at a garage? If at a garage, if you don't mind me asking, how much was it?

Getting far too many ideas from this forum!
