Front suspension height

I'm picking my car up on friday after its overhaul. I popped in to take a coupe of progress snaps. When i look at the pics, the front looks high. I've had new mounts, springs and shocks. Will it settle after some use?

Thats how mine looks as soon as I lower it after having it on jack stands. It then settles after a short drive around the block if yours doesn't then something is amiss

Does this happen on the back too? I had mine jacked up yesterday to prep for fitting new discs today when they are delivered and when I lowered the car I noticed on side was about an inch higher than the other.
