70 convertible ride height after bushing change

Hi all,
I just changed the body bushings on my 1970 Cutlass convertible, and now the rear ride height looks ridiculous, waaay too high. Does anyone know if the convertibles used a different body bushing setup than the coupes? I currently have seven bushing installed per side, but read somewhere that there should only be six. Without a body manual, so looking for help! Thanks!

I don't see how changing body bushings would effect ride height. Rear control arm bushings would if they were torqued with the car in the air.

Only ride height change should be thickness difference between old smushed, rotted bushings and new bushings. What condition were original bushing in?
