Default Do Spec-R springs fatigue a lot after just three years of daily?

Hey all,

Bought SWIFT Spec R's about three years ago...have only daily'd on hauling of anything heavy in the trunk...just me in the car the majority of the time. No track time, no abuse whatsoever, just daily commuting and highway.

Car is no longer dropped 1" (Spec R's give you about a 1" drop) now sits basically on top of rear tires, can't even get one finger between tire and rear fender, can't even get finger into the space actually...finger hits the side of the tire, has no space at all to fit anything in there...thankfully while driving there is no rub even with my spacers, but car is sinking and seems like it's sunken drastically in the last few months even though the springs have settled a long time ago?

Have had two mechanics and myself check suspension out and everything is in good one understands this except that the springs might be bad?

Is this normal?

Car handles great....ride is super comfy....but the drop is too low for my tastes. Wondering if there's a solution other than buying new springs.

The fronts have not dropped like the rears.....which is part of the confusion too since an engine is sitting on those springs all day but nothing is sitting on the rear. Both sides of the car are exactly level and equally low.

Thanks for your help,
