Coilover Rebuild/ride height

Recently I had the Bilstein track pack coilovers rebuilt. The ride height on the coilovers were not touched however, I suspect the front sits slightly higher than prior to the rebuild. This is only a visual and not be measurement. All four were rebuilt.

One of the fronts had signs of a leak prior to rebuild so perhaps was sagging a bit on the spring more than after the rebuild?

the leak would not affect ride height. Measure the ride height at the front jack points and set it to stock which is easy to look up. If you performance drive the car just take it somewhere to get a corner balance instead becuase it is very important on our cars.
