Default Tire change messed up drop spindles lower!! NEED HELP!

I have the z07 package and drop spindles on it, it is lowered a good amount but when I took it to get the tires changed, I got it back and instantly when I got home to take a deeper look, it looked like it is back at stock height? I called and they said itís just with the new tires, which makes it look higher. It is very clear that the front is higher than before but they said itís with the tires. True or false?

They always sit higher than what you have it set to when you have had the wheels off the ground and then put it back down.
I have drop spindles as well and the same happens when its been on a lift or has been jacked up on each corner.
Drive around for a few days and the suspension should settle back down to where it was before.

BTW: This seems more pronounced on Z07 equipped cars I have noticed. (like mine)

Z07 springs are stiff. Let it settle.
