Was the reason for changing those bits due to ride height or has the increased height come after the parts were fitted?

Are you sure you have the top mounts the right way up (the rubber donuts)? When you say high, is the gap at the top where the cap goes higher on one side than the other, or does the car sit higher on one side than the other?

Its the height at the strut top it was high before the rack got replaced as was leaking oil and the other parts followed i replaced the strut top around a year ago settled for a bit and up again the bearing was still ok but put a new one in anyway
