I'm not an ASE Certified mechanic or anywhere close, but I have to ask this question. Is there any chance that the struts you bought are NOT the same for both sides? What I mean is are they side specific? If they are, maybe you got the one for the left side on the right and the one for the right side on the left. That's about the only thing I can think of. I've never heard of anyone gaining that much ride height just by changing struts. I've replace a LOT of them over the past 45 years and never had an issue like that at all. Did you double check the part #'s and compare the new ones with the old ones? They should have been very close to the same height, no matter that the old ones were worn. Upon looking at a couple of different parts websites, I see that the struts ARE side specific. The extended length is 20 and 1/16th of an inch and compressed they measure 13 and 9/16th. The travel length is 6 and 9/16th. I don't know if these measurements will help you or not. Keep in mind that's FULLY EXTENDED and FULLY COMPRESSED measurements.
