Suspension Problems

I recently got my eb xr6 lowered on superlow kings springs and monroe gt gas shockers i had it done at the local mechanichs shop where i get my car serviced etc...
Something tells me though is that he has put v8 srings into the front cause the car sits alot higher then my brothers which has super lows in it aswell and when i compared the springs mine seem alot thicker.
my problem is the car handles like crap its all over the road and doesn't seem too handle compared to my brothers which has the same tyres on it aswell and my car has a camber kit in it and has had a wheel alignment last week the back of the car sits alot lower than the front i like the look but theres no handling and im scared to drive it as its my evryday car ineed it fixed urgently can anyone please help me out i can't afford too drive the esp evryday.

Someone here quoted the ride height for those springs, check yours and then contact the manufacturer for clarification.

The problem with poor stability may be caused by wheel alignment problems. Did you mention the problems when you had the wheel alignment last week? You may also want to make a visual inspection of the suspension to look for any obvious problems.

Lastly and most importantly, take it back to whoever installed them and let them fix it.
